New Video Series with BCIT FSA
Kharé Communications has recently begun production on a new video series with the BCIT FSA (Faculty & Staff Association). These videos will document the group’s work to share an Indigenous model for post-secondary teachers and academic staff to utilize professional mentoring and community outreach for engaging student and community diversity. Kharé Communications is excited be part of this dialogue around gender, Indigenous and neurodiversity/learning differences with the Diversity Circles team.

During our first production day, we had the opportunity to interview Andrew Judge, a remarkable young man with an extensive history working in the field of Indigenous education and research. He is a fine example of the caliber of contributors that will be on display within the series' narrative.
Over the course of the next few months, our production team will be working closely with the BCIT FSA in order to make sure we do justice to their story. It's always rewarding to work with individuals who are genuinely passionate about their cause, and with each interview we're learning more and more.
This isn't the first time we've worked with BCIT on a video project. In 2015, Kharé Communications created the feature-length documentary Breaking Down Walls, Building Bridges. The film followed First Nations students Glen Campbell and Steve Luk as they worked with the VPD to create a new obstacle course for their canine unit.
You can watch the documentary below.
We're very excited to be working on another project that will shed some light on the important work BCIT is doing, as well as bring further awareness to the vibrant Indigenous cultures we have here in British Columbia.
