Meet Angela Bains

Assistant Professor Angela Bains: “I have a commercial practice, TransformExp (strategy and graphic design firm) which encompasses commercial and social change projects. The Vancouver Safe Injection Site (the first in North American) and the Black Youth Training Scheme (in-house graphic design training with no high school grades required) are excellent examples of the kind of work we do. We are currently working on the first integrated community health centre serving the local community and marginalized populations (homeless, sex workers etc.)  

 My business practice has a one-for-one business model, meaning, for every project we complete we invest a percentage of our profits to support an entrepreneur in the developing world by lending all or part of an ‘interest free’ micro loan through crowd funding with lendwithcare.org. These entrpreneurs would not qualify for traditional bank loans. The loans are repaid and this money goes back into supporting other entrepreneurs.  

 At OCADU I will be expanding my work with Black youth, digital futures and creative entrepreneurship.”
