Julio Munhoz – Artist in Residence

MCHB hosts “Artist in Residence” Canadian-Brazilian filmmaker Julio Munhoz 

From May 2016 to July 2017, with the support of the Edmonton Arts Councils, Chronopia Communications, and the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, the MCHB Co-op hosted Canadian-Brazilian filmmaker Julio Munhoz during his “Artist in Residence Program”.    On July 14th we held a celebration as we ended our most interesting and successful Artist-in-residence initiative . We have been so immensely fortunate to have Julio Munhoz – talented film-making, educator and communication expert to join us at the Multicultural Health Brokers Co-op and provided 2 series of training in the area of film-making for social change. In the second series, we got to explore pod-casting as well.

Along with developing his own creative work,  Julio has put on workshops and classes for many of us within MCHB to help us to develop basic film capacity within our organization. As a result several short thoughtful films were developed.  This summer he will be presenting another round of workshops to help us create films focused on women’s leadership and the changes that come from it.
