The Indigenous Speakers Series proudly presents Logan MacDonald, professor in the Department of Fine Arts and Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Indigenous Art.

Logan MacDonald is a visual artist of mixed European and Mi’kmaq ancestry, belonging to the Elmastukwek people of Ktaqmkuk territory (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). His interdisciplinary practice explores notions of belonging in contexts of cultural erasure, queer and disability experiences. MacDonald has been featured as a solo artist exhibiting in competitive and critically engaged galleries throughout Canada, and in 2019 he was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award. MacDonald has taught at three post-secondary institutions and joined the Department of Fine Arts at Waterloo in 2019. In 2020, he was named a CRC in Indigenous Art.

The Indigenous Speakers Series is co-presented by the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre and the Faculty of Arts. The Series highlights the voices of Indigenous artists, writers, activists, and leaders from across Turtle Island, offering UWaterloo students, faculty and staff opportunities to learn from, understand, and engage with Indigenous issues.
