University of British Columbia

The University of British Columbia is North America’s most international university, and a university dedicated to and recognized for its custodial role in arts and heritage. Home to the Anthropology Museum and other significant installations, UBC ranks in the top three universities for making a global impact.

This outstanding culture of learning, heritage, architecture, and art, is set in the incomparable British Columbia coastal environment of towering forests, spectacular shorelines, and sweeping vistas. 

This is a photographer’s dream location, and a place to unleash creativity and artistry.


Why we have chosen UBC as a workshop location

Within easy walking distance lies a vast diversity of natural and architectural environments from which to explore different modes of creative expression. 

UBC is a vibrant and inspirational place of learning, ideal for developing your creative vision.

Easy access to Jericho Beach and the culturally rich Kitsilano neighborhood. 

This workshop location is easily accessible to the photographic community living in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
