“So You Think You Know Mining”, sponsored by the Ontario Mining Association, hosts an annual competition where individuals or groups can create and enter a compelling 2-3 minute video about mining in their community. In partnership with Noront Resources and Engage Learn, DAREarts helped to host three Movie Making Camps in Northern Ontario First Nation Reserves, in which kids learned about geology, film making and leadership. DAREarts provided the expertise to teach the students about film making and assist them in creating their own video to submit to the 2012-13 competition. We are sincerely grateful to Noront Resources for providing the financial support which allowed DAREarts to host these workshops for Aboriginal youth on reserves.

At Long Lake the workshop started slowly and gained momentum as the day progressed. There was a reserved shy energy from the students, but at the same time eager and excited. Almost immediately a joke was made that a rap should be made when Kaitlyn introduced the idea of a “movie”. The DARE values were then introduced.
