Connie Michele Morey Visual Arts Instructor






School of Arts and Science

Connie Michele Morey’s teaching practice focuses on strategies for building communities of inclusion to create safe spaces for creative practice to grow. Her studio work explores the experiences of belonging as ecological interdependence. Through performance, textiles, and sculpture, documented through photography and video, her work questions the effects of colonial industry practices on inter-species displacement. Connie's studio practice is influenced by childhood experiences living rurally off the land, while being surrounded by family traditions of masonry and textiles. Her family history co-mingles settler and Indigenous identities (Scottish, Scandinavian and Anishinaabe), and her studies in visual arts and philosophy (with an emphasis on ecology and decolonial studies) have impacted her interest in the politics of displacement.
