Included are reports on Emily Carr University in Vancouver, UQAM and Concordia in Montreal, NSCAD in Halifax and OCAD in Toronto. Plus: Art departments across Canada, new programs in curatorial studies worldwide and 10 of this year’s top art grads.

This issue is chock-full of topical lessons on the state of art education in Canada.

From Vancouver, Deborah Campbell looks at the Emily Carr University’s widely respected painting department, while, from Montreal, former Tate curator Christina Bagatavicius reports on how art programs at UQAM and Concordia are shaping that city’s vibrant art scene.

Writer Gary Michael Dault examines the future of the newly renovated Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and Winnipeg artist Paul Butler writes about his new residency at the Banff Centre that reimagines art training in terms of communal workshops.
In Toronto, Noah Richler discusses the impact of creative-economy theories on the Ontario College of Art and Design with president Sara Diamond and author Richard Florida, and University of Guelph fine art program director John Kissick offers his perspective on art departments at major Canadian universities, accompanied by a special artist project by Kristan Horton. For an international perspective, artist and writer Eldon Garnet reports from Italy on an international conference about new university programs in curatorial studies.

As a special addition to the issue, art columnist Leah Sandals surveys a cross-section of this year’s art school graduates on how their schools have influenced their art practices.
