iCreate Cape Breton is a pilot project—focused on the theme of slow violence—establishing a collaborative, community engaged research practice that fosters youth resilience. The project involves local youth as co-researchers who draw upon a network of other youth, community elders, and scholars, to communicate their knowledge and perspectives on challenges in their lives. Our methodology fosters positive personal development and social change through arts-based research and integrating scientific investigation, facilitating a synergy between the outcomes of scientific and artistic research.
iCreate Cape Breton involves a series of multidisciplinary, research-based outreach events and activities that facilitate the co-creation and exchange of knowledge across multiple demographic groups and sectors.
