Living Well

Project Description

This video was created for the First Nations Health Council (FNHC) and was shown at Gathering Wisdom X conference in May 2018.
Often, what are described as the ‘determinants of health’ are really the determinants of disease -- through this work we will take a strengths-based approach, that will connect the work being done by the FNHC, all the regional representatives, and health directors to the ‘social determinants of resilience’, put in its most simple terms:  What it means to be Living Well.

Coyotes Food Medicine

Project Description

Storytelling has always been a traditional way to share knowledge and wisdom. Now we have new tools to share old ways, and to take on new problems. In July 2016, Secwepemc Elders were asked to help develop a teaching story about prescription medicine, This story reflects some of the cultural teachers/animals of the Secwepemc’ulcw people.
From this conversation the story of Coyote’s Food Medicines emerged. Coyote is on a mission to collect medicines - but will everything go as planned? Often stories include the Trickster character, who can be both humorous and heroic, helping to teach through its mix of cunning, foolishness and ambition.

Let's Involve Women in Village Budgeting! e-Course

Project Description

We developed an e-learning course for Oxfam Canada that was part of a larger “Power Up” women’s empowerment project in Indonesia, which encourages women’s participation in the budgeting process. This interactive module inspires women to get the issues they care about on the village agenda and funded, while providing tips on how to navigate the process and overcome barriers.
 
To make the process more relatable and overcome low literacy barriers, we created a series of animated videos following the journey of a young Indonesian woman expecting her first child. The responsive HTML 5 course is optimized for mobile users and will be made available online as a web-application or it can downloaded offline as a free-standing module for desktop users. The videos with both Indonesian and English closed captions will also be available.
 
Currently, the project hasn’t launched but you can see the English version.
