Aboriginal Gathering Place
A place to gather, reflect, practice, teach, and celebrate Aboriginal culture.
The Aboriginal Gathering Place hosts students, contemporary artists, and informs curriculum and community.
If you are an Aboriginal student, Emily Carr’s Aboriginal Gathering Place offers a student lounge, computer lab, research area, and studio space for your use, plus workshops and courses designed to reflect Aboriginal culture. Dedicated to meet the cultural needs of our strong Aboriginal community, the space embraces traditional and contemporary Aboriginal design elements in the architectural tradition of a Coast Salish longhouse.
The Aboriginal Program Office and Gathering Place is also welcoming to non-Aboriginal students and visitors and is a resource for all Emily Carr students, faculty and staff. Join us at the gathering place for art exhibits, studio projects, workshops, seminars, celebrations and feasts.
