Learning trip to Opaskwayak Cree Nation and Sherridon, Manitoba

Two weeks into my new role as Program Associate with Tides Canada working on the Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative (NMFCCC), I had the opportunity to go on the 2016 NMFCCC Learning Trip. The Collaborative’s fourth learning trip took us to Opaskwayak Cree Nation (OCN) and Sherridon for one week. The trip provides the Collaborative’s funders with an opportunity to get to know the community partners, learn about life in northern communities, and understand some of the challenges the people on the ground face.

Celebrating 10 years with Reel Youth

This month marks Reel Youth’s 10-year anniversary with Tides Canada and 10-year anniversary leading the youth component of the Vancouver International Film Festival. Reel Youth began in response to the challenge that most media is controlled by adults but young people have unique perspectives, and can use film making to express themselves and be advocates for positive change.
