MA candidate in the joint program in Communication & Culture

Bachelor degree in Science of Communication. UNAM

Research:
After many years of minimum participation in Canadian politics, the Hispanic Community in Toronto is starting a movement to participate actively and directly in politics in three levels of power. From volunteers to candidates, this visible minority is eager to be more visible and to get more representation. This movement is not being reflected in mainstream media, only in ethnic media. It is necessary to create an alternative product, such as a short documentary, to record this movement.

Additional Information:
Isabel Inclan has worked as a journalist for more than 20 years, in both Mexico and in Canada. She is a collaborator with New Canadian Media. She worked as a Press Office coordinator at the Consulate-General of Mexico in Toronto for seven years (2007-2014). In 2017, in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, and in collaboration with the Institute for Creative Exchange, Isabel produced the short video “Canada 150-150 Mexicans,” which portrays Mexicans who are contributing to the development of Canada. The video was screened at seven events in Toronto and Ottawa (https://bit.ly/35pUsoG). In 2016, she organized the first forum of Hispanic journalists at Glendon College with the support of Professor Alejandro Zamora. In 2015, Isabel was honoured as one of the “10 most influential Hispanic Canadians”, an annual award presented by the Canadian Hispanic Alliance.
