Reconciliation + Design: Dialogue 1 - Truth



Join us for the first dialogue of the Reconciliation + Design Series: Truth

This reconciliation + design dialogue series is co-designed and led by UBC Civil Engineering Assistant Professor of Teaching Pam Wolf and Civil Engineering graduate student Danilo Caron.

These dialogues are a scaled Indigenization complement to decolonization curriculum. Applied science invites anyone who reflects on reconciling their design processes to join the conversation. This is an interdisciplinary conversation on reconciliation and design.

The speakers are Indigenous change-makers. We amplify their voices and listen to understand. Students and faculty practice authentic, experiential learning in dialogue circles, learning to weave together these Indigenous perspectives, ways of knowing, and ways of being, with our own as designers.

The breakout room facilitators are students. They will be practicing their skills leading dialogue circles.

Speaker: Danilo Caron


Danilo Caron is a Master of Applied Science student in Civil Engineering and project engineer with Urban Systems Ltd. Born and raised in Kamloops, he is of mixed Italian and Anishinaabe heritage with ties to Castelfranco Veneto Italy and Sagamok Anishnawbek First Nation in Ontario. Since 2017, Danilo, his wife Jewell, and daughter Cicada have been visitors on Musqueam traditional, ancestral and unceded territory.

Danilo combines his construction background and applied science education to his project and construction management research. His research focuses on project delivery methods, their ability to harness Indigenous ways of knowing, and how the engineering industry can advance reconciliation in the broader Canadian society.

When Danilo isn't studying or working, he can be found running the local trails or walking the nearby beaches with Jewell and Cicada.
