A few years ago I completed a Masters degree in City Planning (2013) – studies I undertook as part of a long held dream to carve some time out in my life to study political and economic realities. This led to a number of inner city video projects with a focus on social justice, largely in collaboration with urban Indigenous community development practitioners. Making these social and policy research video projects, for a number of NGOs – the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Fisher River Cree Nation, the Manitoba Research Alliance and CEDnet, to name a few – gave me an invaluable look into different realities, and to truly appreciate the extent of my privilege in this colonial and neoliberal world.
