The training will be held in a region community and is currently planned to be held during the summer months (June to August). Each training session will be for one week. The community training site and training dates will be set based on where the selected trainees are located. The timeline will also be flexible and dependent on the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

The training opportunity goal is to empower youth by providing basic equipment and training in photography to share photos and stories from their communities. All photos and stories will be shared on ICC’s UVAGUT INUIT, a social media platform that seeks to highlight the human dimension of the Arctic, educate the world about our culture and our way of life, and celebrate our culture and connection across the Circumpolar North.
