Designing our Creative Journeys

Collaboration with local communities and exchanging traditional knowledge will be vital components of our framework moving forward. Working even more closely with community members and regional champions like the Minneapolis College of Art and Design will allow us to create more relevant and impactful solutions.

Description:
Join us for an engaging session on designing our collaborative journeys. Our goal is to further build and maintain our international relationships with Minnesota and Manitoba youth, Niriqatiginnga, Global Dignity Winnipeg, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) and beyond. We are also thankful to the University of Victoria Community Based Research Lab the UArctic Thematic Network on Local-Scale Planning, Climate Change and Resilience.

Details:
Building on the incredible success of the 2024 Arctic Congress in Bodø, Norway, we’re excited to continue the conversations. This next semester’s food security, creative entrepreneurship and leadership activities are supported by the OpenAI Researcher Access Program, offering fantastic opportunities to showcase your work and come together as a community of practice. A major theme this year will be collaboratively developing a real food product, but there are also several other related ideas and opportunities: design a zine, lead a workshop, host a mini hackathon, plan an art exhibition, conduct data scraping, or explore other creative avenues. Let’s support each other’s capacity and talents as we contribute to this growing international arts and community-based research collective.

Students take to the world stage: Canadian and American collaborators came together in Norway for the program’s first international conference session at the 2024 Arctic Congress. This unparalleled platform for knowledge sharing, research collaboration, and innovative discourse brought together Manitoba, Minnesota, British Columbia, Alaska alongside projects from across the circumpolar Arctic.

What to Expect:

  • Discussion on collaborative opportunities and projects
  • Exploration of creative and organizational development
  • Brainstorming and planning for professional and artistic growth

Who Should Attend:
Artists, students and youth, designers, and anyone from the research and food communities interested in contributing to an international arts collective with a focus on cross-cultural relationship building.
