On Nov. 22, 2017, Laurier librarian Mark Weiler hosted a movie night in Brantford for the university’s new User Experience Design program (UX Design).
The film, Design & Thinking, drew an audience of more than 60 students as well as numerous faculty, staff and community members.
“This was an exciting partnership and, based on the reception for the film, we are looking forward to continuing to connect with this stellar community,” said Weiler.
Abby Goodrum, head of the UX design program, thanked the Library for its support. She also welcomed Pedro Poblete-Lasserre, a visiting designer from Chile, as a special guest at the movie night. Poblete-Lasserre was in the area to participate in the launch of the new Free Prior and Informed Consent website at Six Nations Polytechnic, described in a recent CBC report: Website aims to put info about resources consent in Indigenous peoples' pocket.
In his introduction to the film, Weiler reflected on how libraries provide important public spaces where we can integrate and question ideas and stories from our cultural history.
“Libraries and the people who work in them support the creation new ideas and stories that are preserved and shared with future generations, and this movie night is hopefully an example of that,” he said.
