Heartfelt all who organized, spoke, sponsored, attended and enjoyed The Comeback 2014!

We are tremendously pleased to report that The Comeback 2014 brought close to 2,000 visitors to the Emily Carr campus over three days!


“We represent so many talented and creative alumni who are building careers, companies, and culture, here in Vancouver and around the world,” says Dave Humphrey, President, Emily Carr Alumni Association. “This is an amazing opportunity to connect, celebrate success, and welcome them back to campus.”

The Association thanks all who joined and invites alumni to keep the event in mind for next year! Reconnect, re-engage, and reinspire your creativity all year long at where you can always join at ongoing alumni events and exhibitions as well as through the Full Circle Program for alumni.

A tremendous thank you to Presenting Sponsors RBC Wealth Management , and to event sponsors Onni GroupOpus Art Supplies, and Monotype for supporting The Comeback 2014. Without your support this event would not have been possible.

The Talkback was an evening of inspiration, generously sponsored by Onni Group. Those in attendance listened to stories from Tim Barber ('03), Danielle Krysa (aka The Jealous Curator) and our esteemed former faculty member and artist, Ian Wallace, of their own breakthrough moments and shared their insights for creative growth. Talks will be posted online soon - sign up to receive an alert when they're published.


The Art Market's inaugural year showcased a unique selection of Emily Carr's talented alumni, thanks to our long-time supporter and event sponsor, Opus Art Supplies. We've published a photo album of our celebrations online - click to view our photo stream and mark your calendar for next year!

“It's been such a success. Our grads have a truly global impact and we are proud to recognize and support them wherever they are,” says Broek Bosma, Associate Vice President, Advancement + Alumni Affairs. “While the newly-launched alumni chapters reach out, THE COMEBACK weekend welcomes alumni home, and creates opportunities for the public to join us at Emily Carr.”
