Zoe Laycock
Research Assistant, Place-Based Field School

Zoë is a 4th year Emily Carr student working towards her BFA Visual Arts major and SPACE minor. She is Anishinaabe Métis, born and raised in Métis Region 3. Zoë’s work is influenced by her experience and upbringing with strong cultural connection, she values community building, cultural accessibility, preservation and activation. Though multidisciplinary, her work scales from small, intimate traditionally beaded works, to larger scale installations — all very much informed by indigenous traditional language, materials, teachings, world view and reciprocity while navigating current mainstream society with these values. She is hoping to continue in the MFA program at Emily Carr.
