SKiP 2020 will be held at Emily Carr University

We are proud to be partnering with Emily Carr University this year, in particular with the Aboriginal Gathering Place who have kindly offered to host our breakout sessions. The new Emily Carr campus is located in the heart of Vancouver, on unceded Coast Salish Territories; the traditional and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish andTsleil-Waututh Nations.

The Aboriginal Gathering Place is …

A place to gather, reflect, practice, teach, and celebrate Aboriginal culture.
The Aboriginal Gathering Place hosts students, contemporary artists, and informs curriculum and community

We will be taking this opportunity to extend our invitation to local indigenous artists, students and educators, in both our call for proposals and selected presenters. The SKiP family will be reflecting and practicing together.
