with Our People, Our Climate Short Film

Commissioned by the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, Our People, Our Climate is a documentary film initiative, aiming to develop the storytelling skills of Nunavut youth and young adults. Inuit communities across Canada's Arctic are essential to current climate change discussions, and this project brings together a range of people in those communities to tell important stories through a unique and distinct cultural lens. Beginning in early 2020, the project emerged as an international collaboration between West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, the Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow, ilinniapaa Skills Development Centre in Iqaluit and University of Minnesota Duluth.

William Huffman, with West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, explains, "From the inception of this initiative, it was meant to provoke new, grassroots perspectives on an environmental narrative, a move from predominately Southern-driven storylines. We wanted young people from the North to create the discourse and illustrate it, with their uniquely Northern voices." 

The participants were Anna Irwin, Chelsea Qammaniq, Kendra King, Carmen Barrieau and Peter Lucassie and their film footage and photographs from the spine of a documentary film which includes images from artists in the Kinngait (Cape Dorset) region. These works are a small element of the much longer process in which they developed new story-telling skills through the period of lockdown.
