Inuvik and Pirursiivik Greenhouses: Creating food security, local jobs and increased social interaction in our northern communities - Nathan Cohen-Fournier, Karin Kettler, Raygan Solotki
The Pirursiivik (Place to Grow in Inuktitut) Project is an ongoing greenhouse and social art project in the Inuit community of Inukjuak, Québec. Pirursiivik Project is a project created in partnership between Makivik Corporation, the Inuit land claim corporation of Nunavik, and the One Drop Foundation. The project’s main objective is to contribute to improving health through a greenhouse and social arts. The Project aims to set a precedent for true community engagement and co-development to positively impact employment, water and food security, as well as cultural pride.
This presentation will showcase the two projects, and results after a summer of working together.
