Renowned Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal and six Indigenous designers will share their stories – U Calgary
UCalgary symposium aims to inspire Indigenous students to pursue careers in design
The Faculty of Environmental Design at the University of Calgary is hosting a symposium geared to encouraging Indigenous students to pursue careers in architecture, planning and landscape architecture.
The Indigenous Design Thinking symposium on Jan. 25, 2018 is the first of its kind to be held at the university. It will feature established Indigenous designers who will provide insight and spark dialogue on pursuing post-secondary education for design-related careers, focusing on how Indigenous designers approach the design of places, buildings and landscapes.
“We developed this event to encourage more Indigenous students to consider careers in the design field. Four of the speakers are graduates from the Faculty of Environmental Design, pursuing rewarding careers as practitioners and educators,” says symposium organizer Graham Livesey, an architect, professor, and former associate dean of architecture.
