OCAD University invites you to join us for the one-day symposium Honouring Indigenous Knowledges: Creating Pathways Through Art and Design Education. The symposium is a presentation of research, relationships and knowledge gained from a two-year project funded by the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT), the goals of which are to enhance the access and mobility of Indigenous learners into art and design post-secondary education.

The symposium will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2020, a day of learning, sharing and celebrating our insights with each other. It will open the evening before with a special screening of the film Fire Song, written and directed by two-spirit Cree/Métis/Danish filmmaker Adam Garnet Jones, who will be in attendance for discussion after the screening.
