It’s ready! Alluriarniq-Stepping Forwards: Youth Perspectives on High School Education in Nunavut is now available on DVD and YouTube.
Background: In October 2012, the film was previewed for our partners at the DEA Coalition of Nunavut, and representatives loved the film! They felt that their understanding of youth experiences was deepened, and that the importance of improving education was more powerful coming directly from young people. DEA members pushed for the film to be released quickly and emphasized the importance of having many different groups in Nunavut view it, from parents, to teachers, students and community leaders. After making small changes suggested by the DEA Coalition, the film was finalized, and duplicated. Now we are ready to spread the important messages young people share in film!
How: Let’s get together and watch the documentary video, by holding small viewing parties across the territory to share the film with our friends and family.
Why: Education in Nunavut is changing. Young people from across the territory have stepped up and told their stories. Now it’s our turn to listen, and to learn from their experiences. Let’s continue the discussion and work together to improve education.
