What defines a national identity? Is it an anthem? A flag? A logo or an icon? How do these elements shape who we are?

Design Canada brings together stories from an innovative group of Canadian designers. Each used design in the 1960s and 1970s to unify the nation, communicate the country’s newfound confidence, and set the foundation for the Canada we know today.

A Canadian story that’s never been told, Design Canada follows this transformation of a nation from colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society—all through the history of iconic graphic design. The Calgary premiere includes a Q&A with Director Greg Durrell and guests following the screening.

Catch Design Canada at 7:00pm on June 20, 2018 at The Plaza Theatre (1133 Kensington Rd. NW).
