The annual fundraiser and craft sale, TOQUE, returns for the Western Front’s 40th Anniversary with an exciting showcase of artists, designers and artisans. Many Emily Carr University faculty and alumni are represented at this year’s event, including Jen Weih, Fieldwork, Gailan Ngan, Lisa Cinar of Draw Me a Lion, and Zoe Garred of Fleet Objects.
Natural Capital was offered as an interdisciplinary, studio-based Community Projects course (CCID 200/300) for the first time at Emily Carr in Fall 2012 and then again in Spring 2013.
The course, offered in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation (DSF), was designed by instructor Sarah Van Borek to support DSF's natural capital work while enabling students to apply their art skills to sustainability initiatives in the community.
