Honouring our First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children and communities
Faculty and students of our Graphic and Digital Design program are listening and learning about our role in the reconciliation process with indigenous peoples and are taking this day to reflect on the suffering that indigenous Survivors, their families and their communities endured through Canada’s Residential school system. We are committed to being respectful community members and learning how design might bring us closer to a state of reconciliation.
Please join us in this reflective learning process by taking time to engage with other learners, leaders and seekers of truth and healing.
We are also pleased to have permission to share an article written and posted by Mark Rutledge CGD, National President of the Graphic Designer’s Association of Canada, in which he shares insights on decolonization in the design industry and many resources to “begin your learning journey”.
Graphic + Digital Design at UFV is located on S’olh Temexw , the traditional territory of the Stó:lō people. We acknowledge the honour and are grateful for the opportunity to live and work on their land.
