The Longest Journey

Mon, Oct 16 2017

The longest journey is the distance between our head and our heart. When we allow knowledge to reach our heart, we move from simply knowing about a subject to understanding how we can use that knowledge to change our world. This is the beginning of wisdom.

The Longest Journey is an interactive art installation by Dawn Marie Marchand (The City of Edmonton's Indigenous Artist in Residence) with Michael Jody Fraser.

The Longest Journey invites the MacEwan community to make a journey—to reflect on how we might integrate knowledge about consent into our worldview so that we can approach the work of ending sexual violence from a place of empathy, compassion and understanding.

This installation will be located at multiple sites across campus:

  • The Welcome Centre (Building 7, 1st floor)

  • The John L Haar Library (Building 7, 2nd floor, near spiral staircase)

  • Students' Association of MacEwan University (Building 7, 2nd floor)

  • The Heart of the Robbins (Building 9, main floor, near south stairway)

  • kihêw waciston (Building 7, 1st floor)

This installation was commissioned by the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention and Education and kihêw waciston for Sexual Violence Awareness Week.


This activity is part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week, presented by:
Office of Sexual Violence Prevention Education | kihêw waciston | Academic Women's Network | SAMU
