Research and Recommended Resources

This research enhances efforts in community entrepreneurship education and provides it in-person delivered by local instructors and synchronously online through teleconferencing infrastructure to an expanded set of Arctic communities. Ultimately, participants connect to larger markets through institutional partnerships. 

Our work was influenced by many other past community arts projects and research. Below are some of the related research and projects which we found incredibly helpful, and hope others will as well.

Over the last decade, transmedia research and arts-based, community development associated with the Arviat Film Society, its members and collaborating international partners have been featured in a wide array of regional, national and international media, such as: newspaper articles (Kivalliq News, Globe and Mail, Nunatsiaq News), magazines (TIME, Above and Beyond), television and radio (CBC News North, Igalaaq, The National).

They appear in post-secondary papers and book chapters (“Research and Reconciliation: Unsettling Ways of Knowing Through Indigenous Relationships” published by Canadian Scholars Press; and referenced in books like “Cultural methods in psychology: Describing and transforming cultures” published by Oxford University Press); research papers (Research for Resilience and Reconciliation? Interrogating colonialism in education and research and imagining the “future world” presented at Pathways to Resilience IV in Cape Town, South Africa in 2017).
