Wellbeing Walk & Roll – Decolonization Tour

June 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

The Decolonization Tour guided by the Belkin Art Gallery highlights site-specific artworks by Indigenous artists and raises questions around issues of place, space and identity. Considering how these works address urgent social and political concerns, we’ll discuss ideas of settler colonialism, decolonization, reconciliation, protocol and the history of UBC’s Vancouver campus, which is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.

Location: This walk will start at Brent Sparrow Jr.’s Musqueam Post, sʔi:ɬqəy̓ qeqən (2016), near the UBC Bookstore @ 6200 University Blvd
