This is where a number Rix Professorship-produced videos are available for viewing. Many are from the work of the Growing Innovation Initiative (a partnership among schools, the Ministry of Education and a number of schools), in general as well as specific to individual projects. Non-Growing Innovation video work is now available here as well. We hope you enjoy and share these representations, and admire, as we do, those who had the courage to share their stories with us.
