Are you working on a project that explores social, cultural, or practical business issues here and around the world?

NIC’s Global Learning Innovation Fund offers $1,000 to $5,000 to community groups with projects that develop global knowledge and leadership skills.

Local groups from Ucluelet to Port Hardy apply to develop their ideas, projects, and events with NIC faculty and students.

Projects to date include Pieces: Celebrating Textiles March 27-29 at the Florence Filberg Centre, the Indigenous and International Food Systems Project in Mount Waddington, and Seen and Heard: Representations of “the Enemy,” a student-led visual research exhibit studying how groups are “othered” to demonize them and justify genocide and war.
