Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

For Immediate Release

BRANTFORD – The “We Will Help Each Other to be Great and Good” research-based community art project will officially unveil a new work of art at a reception Friday, April 1.

The event takes place at 32 Market St. at Laurier’s Brantford campus. Doors open at 3 p.m., with remarks beginning at 4 p.m. This free event is open to all. Revealed at the event will be a 16’ x 8’ metal quilt. Created in collaboration with artist Dave Hind, the work is a response to the ‘Memorial to Laurier,’ a document written in 1910 by the political activist and ethnographer James Teit, on behalf of the Thompson, Shuswap and Okanagan peoples of the southeastern interior, B.C.

Please see the media release for additional details on this initiative.
