Community & Industry

SIAT actively engages with the community and local, national, and international industry.  Undergraduate students can engage in co-op education experiences with employers where many of these move on to full time positions with the companies after student graduation.  We also actively connect with industry for full time job opportunities and industrial sponsorship of scholarships and research funding.  

Upcoming Community Engagements

  • Bill Reid Gallery New Exhibition

    Bill Reid Gallery for Northwest Coast Art new exhibition "Intangible: Memory and Innovation in Coast Salish Art" Opening September 12th, 6 PM

    Six contemporary artists make profound statements about Indigenous rights, land, and sovereignty through their work. This exhibition celebrates a distinct yet intangible connection between contemporary practice and the traditional Coast Salish art of the past.  

    It features 6 videos created by SIAT students in our Moving Images (IAT344) class who collaborated with curators Sharon Fortney and Beth Carter to create short video documentaries featuring each of the exhibiting artists. The documentaries are featured as a part of the exhibition itself. Congratulations to the students and enormous thanks to TA Aynur Kadir!
