1. Short video explaining the central role played by Concordia students as Research Assistants in the Skins Summer Institute. The RAs helped develop the curriculum, write individual modules, taught the majority of lessons, provided technical assistance, developed and administered assessment tools, and made photo and video documentation.

    The Skins Summer Institute was the second incarnation of the Skins Aboriginal Storytelling and Video Game Workshop. Six participants from Kahnawake Mohawk Territory near Montreal, Quebec, spent fourteen days in July of 2012 learning the basics of video game design and production while telling stories from their community. The two primary goals were to learn a wide range of skills in digital media production while exploring how those stories might be remediated into modern media forms. Please see skins.abtec.org/skins2.0 for more information.

    Skins Summer Institute was an Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace project, co-directed by Jason Edward Lewis and Skawennati Fragnito. It was produced by Obx Labs at Concordia University.

    The Skins Workshops are generously supported by Concordia University (Office of Research • Faculty of Fine Arts • Department of Design and Computation Arts • Centre for Digital Arts), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Fonds de recherche sur la société et la culture, the Hexagram Research Institute and Ashoka / McConnel Foundation.
