Join co-directors Dr. Heather Igloliorte and Prof. Jason Edward Lewis, along with members of the IFRC, for the official launch of the Indigenous Futures Research Centre (IFRC), as they introduce the centre’s vision and mission to the Concordia community and the public at large.

This launch marks a significant moment in Concordia’s history as it fulfills Action Point 6.1 of the Indigenous Directions Action Plan, which calls for establishing an Indigenous research centre at the University.

The Indigenous Futures Research Centre explores how Indigenous people are imagining the future of their communities. Anchored by four Indigenous Research Chairs, the IFRC is a unique destination for those interested in research centered on Indigenous communities, scholarship and practice worldwide. The IFRC supports a mix of research approaches, topics, and collaborations ranging across community collaboration, art- and technology-making, scholarly analysis, experimental pedagogy, and theoretical development to illuminate how the challenges of the present can be addressed through understanding our histories and concrete, constructive, and critical dreams of the future. 

How can you participate? Register for the Zoom meeting or watch live on our YouTube channel.
