Planning Studio 3
Since 1998 Studio 3 activites have revolved around planning for aboriginal programs and a multi-cultural focus. Activities here are reported in reverse chronological order.
In 2004 programs for three projects were developed. Presentations took place at City Hall. Studio instructors were Gerry Couture MCIPstretegic planner for the City of Winnipeg and Robert xxx Social Planning Council.
In 2002 Veronica Elves, Derek Eno, Martin Frigo, Nadalene Khan, Susan Milligan and Larissa Sveinson produced a document critically re-examining the University of Manitoba Aboriginal Planning Program (APP) Proposal.
The document is the product of a re-examination of the existing University of Manitoba Aboriginal Planning Program (APP): A Proposal, identification of the major considerations required to further the APP project, and suggestion of three program modesl as a framework for the program's implementation.
The evaluation componenet examies previous work undertaken (see below). An examination of the proposal document and consultation with the department raised concerns regarding the program development process, program structure and program participants. In order to further the project the studio group suggested three main considerations: establishing stakeholders and partnerships, undertaking a comprehensive marketing campaign, and identifying resources for staffing, space allocation, and funding. Three modesl were suggested. The report critically exampes the idea of the Aboriginal Planning Program and the work done on the project thus far, and offer suggestions that would result in a feasible program by developing an implementation plan.
In 2001 the studio worked on developing a website to promote the development of the the Aboriginal Planning Program initiative.
In 2000, the studio presentation aimed to express the ideas, processes, themes and insights developed in creating An Aboriginal Planning Program. Copies of the document can be obtained from Michael Strong. Two students Erik Nilson and Allison Cook along with Professor Tom Yauk and Dr. Ian Skelton will conduct a workshop session on this at the CIP conference July 2001 in Ottawa. (See University of Manitoba Aboriginal Planning Program: A Proposal (2001). A paper was prepared on this work and presented at the CIP Conference in Ottawa.
