Film screening up next for summer programming at Aboriginal Education Centre

The Aboriginal Education Centre will host a screening of short films by Indigenous youth on Friday, August 4. The Wapikoni Cinema on Wheels Tour will come to Windsor for a free outdoor screening at 8 p.m. in front of the CAW Student Centre.

The project brought a mobile audiovisual studio to communities across the country to discover Indigenous voices and talents. Viewers will witness the flowering of a new generation of young filmmakers, learn about other cultures and participate in a discussion with the facilitators.

It has been a busy summer for the centre: staff and students set up an information booth at the Grand River Pow Wow, July 21 to 23 on the Six Nations reserve. See a video from the event below; find an album of photos here.

The booth will next travel to Cape Croker in the Bruce Peninsula for the 33rd annual Neyaashiinigmiing Anishinaabekiing Pow Wow, August 19 and 20. Learn more on the centre’s Facebook page.
