- Technical Workshop: this workshop area examines the role of Indigenous media and storytelling plays in Indigenous Nationhood & community building. This is more of a presentation/keynote styled workshop engagement with slides, audio & video.
- Mechanical Workshop: this workshop area is a “Podcasting & Audio Storytelling 101,” workshop as we explore the medium and present just how easy it is to empower communities via podcasting. This workshop begins with a short presentation, but is a hands on engagement, we will be making an audio storytelling project live and in real time during the workshop.
- Artistic Workshop: this workshop area allows participants to write, create and share new writers works premised on our themes – land, reconciliation and community. This is an interactive, hands on engagement for novice to professional creators/writers/artists.
