This project will enlist participatory input through tactics such as stakeholder meetings and workshops, pop-up booths, videos and this online blog all trying to reach Dalhousie’s students, faculty, staff and the community. Aspects of diversity that will be considered during the engagement and implementation processes include: symbols, agriculture, infrastructure, accessibility, Indigenous and Settler history, as well as a way to represent the 155+ countries that play a role at Dalhousie University.
The reason for engaging Dalhousie University’s community including students, staff, faculty and the public is to enhance diversity and inclusivity on campus to better recognize Dalhousie & Nova Scotia’s past and future history. In order to represent origins and futures into the re-design community engagement outreach activities will take place to transform the Bicentennial Commons.
Stay tuned for more detail regarding each engagement activity that will be taking place Fall Semester 2017.
