    On Friday, April 24, 2015, Emily Carr University special guests broke ground at a ceremony to marking the launch of construction for our new campus.

    As part of the celebration, four Emily Carr undergraduate communication design students created and designed the seven shovels to mark this historic event.  

    The seven shovels were created to represent seven distinct areas within Emily Carr’s community.

    1. Foundation Year – triangle motif symbolizes a pyramid, upward movement and focus, the journey students travel while pursuing their undergraduate degrees

    2. Faculty of Culture + Community – the circles represent the group, and the connection we all share with one another, which forms the fabric of culture

    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

    Establishments, institutions, public areas, domestic spaces, even ephemeral situations carry with them protocols with which we are asked to comply as we encounter, enter, or pass through them. Our contemporary understanding of “protocol” is as “an official procedure or system of rules governing affairs or behaviours.” However, early definitions of the term—a provisional draft, a working manuscript—imply its opposite.

    We invite submissions of recent or proposed work from students active in any and all media, to be considered for inclusion in an exhibition project investigating this expanded space of protocol, collaboratively curated by the students of Emily Carr University’s AHIS 401 Topics in Curatorial Projects.
