Decolonization strategies in film and journalism
March 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
“Documenting Indigenous Clean Energy Initiatives Through Mobile Journalism: Employing Conciliatory Innovative Practices” is a research-creation project centred in the Department of Journalism at Concordia University. Assistant Professor Aphrodite Salas will share how the project aims to create strong journalism in the form of three short documentaries and a multimedia web portal featuring the Heiltsuk First Nation in British Columbia, the Métis community of Île-à-la-Crosse in Saskatchewan, and the northern Quebec Inuit community of Inukjuak as each takes broad-based and long-term action towards a clean energy future. The three-year project uses mobile journalism tools and techniques to gather filmed interviews and observational sequences with community leaders, members and activists to highlight the solutions that are being created and implemented in each place. Student journalists play a key role in the preparation and production of documentaries and multimedia portals. Research partners include Indigenous Clean Energy, Journalists for Human Rights and CTV Montreal.
