Stacey Aglok Macdonald

Stacey is the producer of Qanurli, a television comedy series made entirely in Inuktitut language (sub-titled in English). The series has evolved over the seasons, but today is described as a Wayne’s World meets 30 Rock, Inuk-style. This winter she will be shooting the 6th season of her TV show in Iqaluit, during the worst of the winter season. With fewer and fewer residents of Iqaluit speaking Inuktut, one of the goals of the show is to make the Inuit language “cool” so that more youth will want to use it. The content for the show is loosely based on the real life experiences of the cast and crew - informed by their Northern surroundings. To make this self-described “cardboard and duct tape kind of show”, Stacey and her team rely on being incredibly resourceful, driven, and using their humour on-screen and off.  And she does this all while being a single mom to an eight-year-old daughter.
