Abstract/Résumé : To add to the conversation about how Inuit knowledge may be shared through collaborative projects, we present stories about educational possibilities that emerged from an archaeological field school and youth photography project that we pursued in collaboration with the community of Akulivik and some of its youth over the past year. It entailed three dimensions. First, during the summer of 2013, a group of twelve youth participated in a field school at Kangiakallak site on Qikirtajuaq (Smith Island), assisting with the excavation and learning much about the rich history and culture behind the artefacts they found together with a team of archaeologists and specialists, and at the elbows of an elder who shared much about place and its history. Second, a subgroup of the youth then participated in the Avataq archaeology week this spring, to learn more about the preservation of the artefacts, next to meeting people working in the field of archaeology and culture. They also had the opportunity to visit post-secondary educational institutions and exchange with Inuit peers. Third, throughout the summer and in the fall, together with their peers at the Tukisinarvik school, youth took pictures of their work on the island, the landscape, and their community to share their point of view about these experiences. It led to a photography exhibit that was inaugurated during their visit South in a local museum, and then returned to their school for community sharing. Together, we will focus on how this collaborative project led to new inspirations for inutized educational practices and aspirations for post-secondary education. In particular, we will discuss the visibility and empowerment the project created of the younger generation which in many ways made possible an intergenerational dialogue and that is key to enlightening knowledge.

Aislin describes herself as passionate about design but with a pragmatic world view. Her interests in environmental planning and design took root at an early age, while she was growing up in an isolated tourist and fishing town in Costa Rica. Her world view has been enriched by life, work and study in diverse places, which will continue with the winter semester on exchange at Wageningen UR, the Netherlands. We look forward to her contributions to landscape architecture in Atlantic Canada.
The scholarship will be awarded to a student entering the second or later year of landscape architectural study in a recognized undergraduate or graduate program.

Klynstra spent more than 20 years as a design professor in Environmental Planning at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and then at Dalhousie University during which time he mentored many students. In his over 40 years of practice as a landscape architect, Peter Klynstra was involved in major projects relating to waterfront planning, institutional land planning and development research. In addition to his innovative design talents, Klynstra was highly sought after for his expertise in community consultation and was a strong advocate for the voice of the community in planning projects. He was a member of the National Capital Commission’s Design Advisory Committee from 1994-1996, and was a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects. But perhaps he is best known for his energy and enthusiasm to help on projects large or small with his limitless stream of ideas and encouragement. In 2011 the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects bestowed its President’s Award upon Klynstra in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the profession.
An award of $1000 will be presented to an Atlantic Canadian student entering the second or later year of landscape architectural study in a recognized undergraduate or graduate program. The scholarship recognizes Peter Klynstra’s significant contribution in the field and is intended to support students entering the profession.
Aiden Fudge, a second-year MLA candidate at the University of Guelph, was the 2017 recipient of the Peter Klynstra Memorial Scholarship. Aiden was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He previously worked in the forestry and silvicultural industry, initially as a tree planter as well as performing a variety of forestry tasks including surveying, thinning and seed collecting in Nova Scotia and later in Alberta and British Columbia. His passion for people, design and the environment eventually led him to Toronto in early 2014 where he enrolled in the Landscape Design Certificate program at Ryerson University and ultimately realized that formal study in Landscape Architecture was a path he wanted to pursue. Congratulations, Aiden!
