Attending Notes

This workshop is aimed to be casual, open, and participatory – not another zoom lecture! We highly encourage students to attend and share their contemplations on Indigeneity. While the workshop is hosted on zoom – we will be using Miro as well.

We welcome students and faculty to think through a series of prompts and create their own Land Stories. Collectively, we hope to share these stories, challenge the role of a land acknowledgement, and work towards a decolonized approach to design and the site analysis.  

 

Land Stories, a concept introduced to us by the Boarding Diaspora podcast, describes the process of unpacking our personal history with the Land. Through this workshop, we hope to ask the hard questions: Do you feel a sense of home on this land? How did you come to reside in settler-colonial Canada? How can we, as architects, design ethically on Turtle Island?
