May 7, 2014 – Guided Tour of Emily Carr University of Art & Design.

EmilyCarrEmily Carr is one of the oldest post-secondary institutions in British Columbia and the only one that is dedicated to professional education and learning in the arts, media and design. Formerly known as the Vancouver School of Art, it was established in 1925 as the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts. In 1978, ECU was designated a provincial institute before moving to Granville Island in 1980. A second building on Granville Island was opened in 1995. In 1995, ECU was granted authority to offer bachelor degrees: BFA and BDes and honorary degrees: Honorary Doctor of Letters (D.Litt), Honorary Doctor of Laws (D.Laws)and Honorary Doctor of Technology (D.Technology). In 1997, ECU was granted authority to offer Bachelor of Media Arts degrees (BMA). In 2006, ECI launched a Master of Applied Arts (MAA) and opened the Intersections Digital Studio. In 2007, the Great Northern Way consortium made up of Emily Carr, UBC, SFU and BCIT launched the Master of Digital Media program (MDM) at the Great Northern Way Campus.

 

Note that we will also have a lunch at the Pacific Institute for  the Culinary Arts after the tour.
