"We are drawn to places with vitality, activity and energy. We want to work with others in a space rich with ideas, and abundant with resources."
SIAT is an emerging, energetic, community-centred ecosystem. We are growing a new kind of community of scholars – one based on cross-discipline collaboration between designers, technologists, artists and scientists.
The SIAT program was established in 2002 at Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus. The Surrey campus is located in the metro-Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. Vancouver is a dynamic, multicultural city set in a spectacular natural environment with a vibrant arts and technology community.
There are a wide range of recreational activities at your doorstep. The city has an excellent transportation system and the Skytrain makes the Surrey Campus of SFU easily accessible from many surrounding regions in and around the lower mainland.
