Tuesday April 5, 2016: Canadian Knowledge Transfer and Exchange
Community of Practice- Toronto Event and Webinar: Mobilizing Inuit
Cultural Heritage a multi-media/multi-platform re-engagement of voice
in visual art and performance: OISE Room 7-105 (252 Bloor Street West)

Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage: a multi-media/multi-platform
re-engagement of voice in visual art and performance (MICH) is a
six-year SSHRC Partnership Grant held at York University that focuses
on the contribution of Inuit visual culture, art, and performance to
Inuit language preservation, social well-being, and cultural identity.
Bringing together Inuit and non-Inuit researchers, artists and
stakeholders, MICH currently supports research, creation, and
curatorial activities related to sculpture, gaming, storytelling,
music, craftwork, prints, performance, digital connectivity, archival
work, database compilation, and audiovisual knowledge preservation.
All activities are undertaken with the intention of improving and/or
advancing: 1) Access for Northern communities to digital information
and communication technologies, 2) Connection of Inuit voice to
objects of cultural heritage, and 3) Creation of Inuit-centric
cultural capacity.

Katujjiqatigiingniq –"collaborating together" – as Indigenous and
non-Indigenous participants and partners inspires our Knowledge
Mobilization vision. This vision guides the two primary KmB strategies
of the grant: social media and gaming. Anna Hudson and Ali Hirji will
present social media and gaming projects developed by the MICH
research team and assess what measures of success need to be employed
from an Indigenous perspective.
