Please consider sharing your thoughts through the survey below. We want to better understand the impact of our film and see how it connects with conversations that might already be happening in your world. Our project is deliberately open-ended, so we want your perspectives to help direct our next steps. Learning a little about your impressions and experiences will help us do that.
We’re interested in everyone – while our film (and greater project) centres Indigenous experiences, we want to know what our film made you think of, and how it made you feel. We’re collecting demographic information so that we can better understand who we’re reaching, and to see if there are correlations between someone’s identity and how they understand indigeneity and the academy.
All of those within and beyond universities are invited to join our conversation: academic and professional staff, casual and unemployed university workers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, or anyone who interacts with universities in a broad sense. You’ll notice that some of our questions focus on the experience of Indigenous people in universities, but we’d love your responses if you’re outside of the academy – you can just leave some questions blank or answer them with regards to your own place of work.
We’ll publish updates on what we’ve learned from collected survey material on our blog and email a link to this to anyone who filled it in. If we want to make any use of anything you’ve shared, we will contact you via email and get your permission before doing so. Your responses will be viewed by our project team only (Katerina Teaiwa, Janelle Stevenson, Talei Mangioni, Trish Tupou and Bianca Hennessy), and we will deidentify your data before sharing with anyone else. If we decide to undertake scholarly research on this topic, we will contact you with the regular participant information documentation and consent forms before doing so. If you have questions or concerns about this survey, you can contact us.
