My Ph.D. project is a creative research collaboration with Inuit Elders, artists and youth in Panniqtuuq (Pangnirtung), Nunavut, a remote community of 1600 on Eastern Baffin Island. Inuit have identified waste as a serious environmental and health threat. Central to my inquiry is ‘Who gets to define ‘waste’?’ and ‘who is responsible?’ for the myriad of waste-related issues in Inuit Nunangat.
