Arthur Erickson Foundation & Yosef Wosk Family Foundation

The Arthur Erickson Foundation and the Yosef Wosk Family Foundation recognize the role of education in the making of informed and engaged citizens and the need to remake society with a shared commitment to the decolonization of existing systems of thought and knowledge.

Education in architecture and many other areas of design creates experts in the making of effectively useable spaces, structures and cities, and promotes responsible stewardship of the environment with the thoughtful use of natural resources across generations.

The AEF and the Yosef Wosk Family Foundation understand the transformative power of education and embrace this opportunity to actively support the education of architects, landscape architects and other  designers working in the related disciplines.
