Sharing Wall

September 27 to October 1, 2021
John A. Russell Building

From Monday, September 27 – Friday, October 1, 2021, we recognize Truth and Reconciliation Week. This week, and particularly the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Thursday, September 30, presents us with the opportunity for deep introspection and learning. We encourage everyone in our Faculty of Architecture community to consider what we as individuals and as a community of students and educators can do to learn the Truth and work toward Reconciliation. 
The Faculty of Architecture offers this orange wall as a place to convey reflections and thoughts on Truth and Reconciliation. Everyone is welcome to share their ideas and feelings in a place of solidarity, peace, and respect. You may choose to show your respect and gratitude for the Indigenous peoples who have inhabited these lands upon which the university now stands, or to consider what we as designers and planners can learn from the land and traditional land-based knowledge.

If you and not on campus and would like to share words or images about what you are learning or how you are feeling you may email them to and they will be printed and added to the wall.

Thank you for sharing with our community in the spirit of reconciliation, collaboration, and learning.
