Critical Approaches to Culture + Communications

A Weblog by Ron Burnett (Founded in 1994 and now celebrating 23 Years!!)

This site began as one of the first academic sites in Canada when the World Wide Web was in its early phase of development. I have maintained it through many iterations since 1994.

A New Campus and a New Era for Emily Carr University

A rendering (not the design!!) of Emily Carr's new campus at Great Northern Way

Yesterday, a historic announcement! The BC government will be contributing 113 million dollars to the construction of a new campus for Emily Carr. The total cost of the campus is 134 million. Our hope is that it will be a model of 21st century learning in the arts and design. We want the campus to tell a story about the impact, importance and need for the arts. Our vision is to create and support the development of a new cultural precinct for Vancouver and to bring industry, non-profit art organizations and cultural activities onto the campus. We also want to bring the eastern and western parts of the city together, and support the many communities that surround the site. Please check out some of these links.
