Mollie Burke Virtual Loops ECU 2021 Grad Show
The Emily Carr Grad Show has always been a must see for us each May, and this year due to the pandemic, the University is hosting the show virtually so everyone locally and from around the world can explore the grad show virtually. 
“Historically, Emily Carr has presented the grad exhibition on campus, but this yeaer we invite those from around the world to explore the work virtually. This space is a reflection of our community and a testament to the talents that they contribute to the world, and we hope you enjoy your time here.” -Trish Kelly, VP Academic + Provost
The virtual show also will host live events (see site for details) featuring animation, screenings and artist talks. Here are a few sneak peeks below. Or check out for more info. Congrats grads!
