Year of Reconciliation
Client: City of Vancouver in partnership with Reconciliation Canada. My Role: Create an identity, logo and a series of print and digital materials supporting a Year of Reconciliation by acknowledging the negative cultural impacts and stereotypes that resulted from Canada’s residential school system, and work towards a greater shared understanding of the historical impacts that have shaped the experiences of Indigenous peoples to date. A large part of my work throughout this project involved listening and collaborating with Vancouver's indigenous community. Results: Through a series of carefully crafted materials we are embracing reconciliation through a year-long initiative as a way to mend the past, build shared understanding, and create a legacy for meaningful change in society. The initiative included a series of gatherings, intercultural dialogue and storytelling workshops, public education, and cultural and arts programs.
