Related Research and Resources

Here is a list of food security, arts and community based research and resources we will be using for the Niriqatiginnga program. We are always looking for relevant and helpful resources to shape our food security project.

Niriqatiginnga will fuse food security, Arts Based and Community-Based Participatory Research, storytelling, qualitative and quantitative analysis and interdisciplinary approaches to build relationships between research institutions, academia, Indigenous community members and government. Areas of focus will include increasing community participation in early planning and development of food systems. Additional activities will focus on food system planning, training and skill development, innovation and technology adoption, enhancing individual and community resilience and climate change adaptation.

If you have any resources you would like to share that would help us, or if you are interested in learning more about the work we are doing, we would very much like to hear from you. For more information, please contact us or send us an e-mail at
