Textile Arts Dept. crisis report

May 1st, 2013

As many readers will know by now, the long standing Capilano University Textile Arts Department and Studio Arts Department have recently and suddenly been thrown into crisis mode under threat of budget cuts that would lead to the elimination of both our departments.

Various cuts would also be applied to many other departments at Capilano University, including complete suspension of Computing Sciences and the vibrant Interactive Design Diploma Program.

These cuts would fundamentally change the nature and character of Capilano University forever.

During this past week we have been using our facebook page as our primary means of communication; this page will continue to be a hub.

Please also refer to the Capilano University Faculty Association page for information.Remember to go to ‘Discussion Forums’ on the right and also linked here.

Our community has been overwhelmingly supportive; we are very grateful and thank you all.  Please know that we are working hard and will continue to work hard every day  to try and ensure that these cuts do not occur.

Of course your letters and your presence at any and all gatherings makes a difference.  We will keep in touch.
