Lydia Etok – Chant de gorge inuit & co-directrice artistique d’Oktoécho pour le volet autochtone
Originally from Kangiqsualujjuaq in Nunavik, Lydia Etok remained close to her nation by being daily involved in the Makivik Society, which allows her to dedicate her time to developing cultural sensitivity and fostering understanding between people from the north and people from the south, with an approach based on skills development. In the field of creation, she actively participates in numerous projects which allow her to both share and marie her traditions and her culture, through throat singing and traditional tales. Curious by nature, she also gained experience in making traditional and contemporary costumes. She wishes to instill in this multimedia and interactive project her sensitivity, her values, her experience and her commitment to exchanges between different cultures. In collaboration with the Indigenous organizations Feux Sacrés and Avataq, she also participates in the validation of all stages of creation to ensure that her nation is well represented.
