Projections: Kwe

The project was initiated by the Engineering Undergraduate Society’s Indigenous Inclusion Committee (ICC) with the hopes of increasing visibility, representation, and inclusion of Indigenous students and cultures in the Faculty of Engineering, and developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering’s Dean’s office, the Provost’s Indigenous Initiatives Office, and McGill’s Visual Arts Collection. The exhibit features 30 artworks from a variety of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, curated by the Indigenous Inclusion Committee, selected from McGill's Visual Arts Collection. It is the first exhibit of its kind at McGill.

Projections: Kwe was launched in April 2022 and will be running for one year. All are invited to view the exhibit and engage with the stories behind each work. Located in McConnell Engineering Building Lobby (3480 University Street).

McGill University is on land which long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
