About Satellite x Activism
Satellite x Activism is a five month residency for Emily Carr project teams to develop major social innovation projects that are applied, self- directed and rooted in practices of activism and place-based responsibility
Facilitated by Laura Kozak, residents have access to studio space, mentorship, peer support and funding toward the goal of developing products or services; initiating events, programs, or community partnerships; or starting studios, collectives, agencies or non-profits.
Satellite x Activism projects:
connect to localized movements of art, design and activism
collaborative, socially engaged initiatives that address the social and political realities of communities
bring contextual attentiveness to systems of oppression and inequity
build relational, place-based networks (for example, who would we work with and how during disaster response)
support care and mutual aid within localized community, nurture place-based storytelling or responsibility to land
consider human and non-human relationships
support community or seek to create social equity
are shareable, with learning that is open to others
support designer agency, practicality, navigating a way forward
establish designers’ participation in or creation of community
help establish conditions for artists and designers to financially support themselves through project lens, give financial sustainability to the project itself
negotiate “how” alongside “what”
Realized with support from the Vancouver Foundation, the Ministry of Advanced Education, and the Association for Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (ACE WIL).
