Brenda Reid (they/she) is an emerging multidisciplinary artist and designer who works and lives in Kitchener, ON, on the Haldimand Tract, land promised to the Six Nations. They earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Waterloo. They recently completed a four-month artist residency with the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.

Brenda’s practise explores ideas around care and the peculiarity of urban space. Their work often draws on historical care artifacts such as quilts and explores the role of softness in expressing care. The work uses art as a medium to have difficult conversations around ethics and the impacts of city-building and dwelling.
