Some of the sweetest stories of this era are yet to be heard by the world, and you my nieces and nephew hold them in your minds and hearts. Each one being honoured by the telling, the sharing with another human being, who also has a story to tell.

Great storytelling begins with great storytellers. NCGC supports initiatives to develop technical and creative skills for emerging storytellers.

Storytelling Mentorship Program

Through our Storytelling Mentorship program we connect across cultures through the intimate power of stories, photos and film. The program is designed for emerging storytellers who want to use their story as an advocacy tool for change.

Support for filmmakers

Stories shape how we understand the world, our place in it, and our ability to change it. NCGC is  proud to support filmmakers in their quest to tell their own stories and share them with the world. Watch Jared Dulac's production of the Yukon First Nations Climate Action Fellowship's film on Reconnection or the short film, How Rabbits Came into the World.

Tiny Film Library

NCGC also maintains a small collection of documentary films that can be borrowed for educational screenings.
