Satellite x False Creek 2022
From May – July 2022, Satellite is hosting six project teams working to develop self-directed projects connected to place-based approaches in Vancouver’s False Creek Flats*.
The project teams are made up of students and recent grads from the Master of Fine Arts, Master of Design, Industrial Design, Visual Arts and Social Practice and Community Engagement programs at Emily Carr and include residents Julia De La Puente Calvo, Melanie Camman, Jenie Gao, Bianca Del Rio Kodato, Zoe Laycock, Teagan Moore, Danika Oystrek, Alex Swanson, and Paula Torres Urzua.
Supported through mentorship, peer-to-peer learning, workshops, walks and funding, the Satellite x False Creek projects are moving toward realization in applied contexts, including developing products or services; initiating events, programs, initiatives or community partnerships; or starting studios, collectives, agencies or non-profits.
*The False Creek Flats are loosely bordered by Great Northern Way, Clark Drive, Prior Street and Main Street.
Satellite X False Creek is generously supported by the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training.
