The Cape Breton Chapter has been invited to participate in Membertou’s Career Expo which will provide an opportunity to recruit, network and promote the profession of architecture to youth, community members and the general public. Join the Cape Breton Chapter as it focuses on UNCEDED: Voices of the Land Canada’s submission to the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. This exhibition showcased 18 Indigenous architects from Turtle Island (Canada and the USA) to represent the two nations at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, the most prestigious architectural exhibit in the world. UNCEDED: Voices of the Land is a celebration of Indigenous architecture that speaks to and from landscapes of resilience, overcoming unforgiving limitations and serving as a register of hope and pride for Indigenous designers across Turtle Island. UNCEDED: Voices of the Land showed the world that Indigenous cultures inscribed within the laws, customs, and traditions of its peoples, have a great contribution to make to the world, as seen through the work of the Indigenous architects.
