Wapikoni participated in the International Volunteer Cooperation Organisation’s Conference – IVCO 2018 which was held in Montreal from October 29th to the 31st. “Women and Youth: Bridging the Gap” was this year’s theme and several activities and conferences were held over the three days. Wapikoni's Executive Director, Odile Joannette, took part in an activity called "Human Library" where she shared with others her personal experiences as Wapikoni's "Learning by Creating" methodology. She, along with Saed Karzoun, from Taghyeer for Social Media, our local partner in Palestine, gave a talk on the importance of art and new technologies for inclusive development and the empowerment of Indigenous communities, women and youth.
