About

Camille Georgeson-Usher is a Coast Salish / Sahtu Dene / Scottish scholar, artist, and writer from Galiano Island, BC, the land of the Pune’laxutth’ (Penelakut) Nation. She is a PhD candidate in the Cultural Studies department at Queen’s University where she is looking to better understand how Indigenous protocols from different nations intersect in urban centres through a research-creation process. She is interested in looking at the many ways in which Indigenous peoples come together in urban space, the stories that contribute to and build place through time, and acts of mark making through the example of street/public art practices as a type of gathering.
