This panel will bring together the founders and/or directors of Indigenous-led, Indigenous-focused digital media labs and studios together to discuss the challenges of supporting Indigenous media creation and building capacity in digital technology with and for our communities. It will also discuss the exciting opportunities for regional, national and international collaboration now that we are attaining a critical mass of these Indigenous-determined spaces for creation and research.
