The DDM Fellowship Program recognizes the unique and critical voices of design and dynamic media undergraduate students evidenced through their studio-based work within curriculum.
The program invites submissions of studio projects that respond to and contend with the plural and contemporary social, political and ecological conditions of the world. The fellowships are opportunities for DDM students to highlight how their course-based work engages with Emily Carr’s EDI priorities and Action Plan, and commitments to ecological sustainability.
We especially welcome completed as well as in progress student work that addresses Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Sustainability and Climate Justice, and Ethical Engagements with Technology. Example projects may include, but are not limited to, projects and productions that engage contextual attentiveness to systems of oppression and inequity that impact ecologies and societies, place-based practices and responsibility to the land, ethical and critical use of technology, the social and political realities of communities, expanding relationships of care with more-than-human beings, community-engagement for sustainability, and seeking ways to create social equity or increase ecological literacy, and designers' and media artists' roles in fostering a sense of community and belonging.
DDM Student Fellows will receive a $500 award, and are expected to participate in the mobilization of their projects in a public Symposium to take place in the Spring semester, as well as contribute documentation for online archiving.
This year's Student Fellowship Symposium will take place on Friday, April 8th at 3:00 pm in MOCAP (Motion Capture Studio)
