Tony Eetak (Creativity for Entrepreneurship), Nunavut, Dan Vandal (our local Member of Parliament for St. Boniface and St. Vital), Constance Menzies (Chocolatier Constance Popp) and Jamie Bell (Inclusion in Northern Research) take in the sights and sounds of historic St. Boniface during the start of this year’s Canada Day long weekend in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The Canada Day long weekend marks the midway point of two weeks of arts workshops and activities ranging from conference sessions for the Auviqsaqtut Inuit Studies Conference, connecting with researchers, artists and youth from new arts and research projects in communities like Winnipeg, Windsor, Arviat and Tuktoyaktuk. The results sharing workshops as part of our Winnipeg-based incubator for digital and cultural entrepreneurship could only have been made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and Minneapolis College of Art And Design.
