Indigenous Rising Media works globally to challenge Co2lonialism with grassroots movements on the land, in the streets, in corporate boardrooms and in the media. Join us for a short film festival and workshop to explore how we can build a decolonised climate justice movement using narrative based storytelling. We will explore how we can use digital media and storytelling strategies to move to recenter indigenous cosmologies, resistance strategies and voices in the fight for climate justice.
