ECUAD DONOR MAP
The ECUAD DONOR MAP series is a zine and two posters connecting some of the biggest donors for our new campus to local gentrification and other Place-based violence. The series is by Mickey Vescera and Mickey Morgan for FALL 2020 SOCS-302 Ethics of Representation. The zine and poster is in the process of print distribution to named subjects and around East Van. In addition the series is also available for any and all to print and distribute (CC-BY-SA).
Some questions we contemplated in the construction of these maps, and throughout our scholarship at Emily Carr University of Art + Design:
How did we get here in this shiny new campus “owning” the Land? Who are our donors that paid for this? Where do we find them in our school and in our neighbourhoods? How much of the “property” in East Van do they own? What other capital investments do they hold? Who does our being here serve?
And ultimately, how can we disrupt this built-in power imbalance to be better neighbours?
