Screening of Design Canada Doc - Vancouver

The Vancouver premiere screening of "Design Canada" hosted by director Greg Durrell and special guests from the film. Screening starts at 6.30pm, Q&A with Greg Durrell and guests following the film.
Through the lens of graphic design, the Design Canada documentary follows the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society.

The biggest question we ask ourselves as a country is “what makes us Canadian?” What defines a national identity, is it an anthem? A flag? Is it a logo or icon? How do these elements shape who we are? In the 1960s and 1970s, these questions were answered by an innovative group of Canadian designers, who used design to unify the nation.


Screening date: Thursday, June 28

Time: 6:30pm
