Ensuring Indigenous Voices are Heard at UNCOP26 & Beyond

McLeod Hall, the Pearce Institute, 840-860 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 3UU

Nick Lunch introduces young Indigenous filmmakers.

Since 1999, InsightShare has pioneered the use of participatory video and storytelling to support the self-representation and self-determination of Indigenous peoples. We enhance Indigenous capability to gather and influence civil society through the powerful medium of video.

In September 2021, young first-time filmmakers from southern and eastern Africa embarked on pilgrimages to sacred sites, forests, oceans and local communities to speak with elders about the impacts of climate change. The journeys undertaken by the 6 Indigenous video hubs with their elders and cultural singers, have reinforced culture and spirituality, promoted intergenerational and intercultural exchange, and we are now ready to share those learnings with global audiences at COP26.

Join us for the world premiere of 7 short films made this month especially for a Glasgow audience in honour of COP26. Screening will be followed by an informal discussion with InsightShare Founder and Director Nick Lunch.
