The Indigenous Routes Collective is an ad hoc group formed in August 2011 by Amanda Strong, Archer Pechawis and Ben Donoghue to carry out a community collaborative project producing an interactive documentary with six native youth.
Through the development phase of this project discussions have begun regarding the formalization of Indigenous Routes as a non-profit organization to meet the growing need for new media training for indigenous artists.
At Indigenous Routes we believe the next generation is our greatest resource, that's why we strive to create projects that level up our youngest artists.
When traditional Indigenous artists look to change or adapt their medium we are there to help. Our board is ready to give advice and knowledge to any Indigenous artist wanting to try interactive and new media.
Indigenous Routes wants to share the rich and limitless possibilities of Indigenous interactive and new media works with Canada and the world. This is why we advocate for these voices to be heard.
