Coast Salish Initiatives Consultant

Cory Douglas was born and raised in Coast Salish Territory ‘Vancouver’, and brings over 25 years of local experience in art and architectural design. He is a Squamish Nation member with Haida and Tsimshian ancestry. Cory began his business as a graphic artist and continues to redefine himself as he merges his academic architectural vocation with his innate creativity.

Cory is connected to the Squamish Nation through his parents and has been studying traditional Haida form and Formline and Coast Salish design. Cory’s intention is to communicate the cultural history of Canada alongside the development and design strategies through decolonization.

We welcome Cory as he collaborates and advises on a range of project with the Bard administrative and artistic teams.
