A series of free presentations, workshops and performances designed to inform and inspire music-makers of all proficiency levels.
SUBTLE TECHNOLOGIES is pleased to present WE++, a festival inquiring into cultural heritage, ancestry, hybrid identities, and virtual environments. We++ consists of three interrelated events – a panel conversation, an interactive architectural scale new media installation and a digitally oriented workshop series. The program playfully examines virtual place-making in game interfaces and genetic databases as a means for decolonization and reconciliation through disparate modes of (re)presentation.
Look inside Canada’s largest university of art and design. Bring your friends, family and supporters and take a studio tour, watch students as they work, or talk with faculty and staff. OCAD University will provide a glimpse of emerging trends, and where art and design practice is making new connections. Imagine yourself here.
This hands-on workshop facilitated by Dr. Lynne Milgram will provide research proposal writing support for your upcoming CGS-M (SSHRC, NSERC) and Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) application(s). Please come prepared with specific questions related to your research projects.
Research Wednesdays is a speaker series presented by the OCAD U Library. It's a forum for anyone (undergrad or graduate students, staff, or faculty) to present in a supportive environment. Take a break over lunch to learn about new opportunities for Toronto creative researchers. Take part in this year's Open Access Week by attending this event with Chris Landry and Shelby Stinnissen!
A  three-hour guided activity and discussion, led by Carolynne Crawley, will focus on breaking down colonial ways of thinking that separate people from the their natural surroundings, and building responsible and reciprocal relations with the land. This is part of Decolonizing the Land, curriculum development project led by Professor Amish Morrell and supported by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Nicole Collins and Bogdan Luca work to discover affinities between distinct approaches to painting and to articulate the initial unlikely impulse to put their works together.
A showcase of works of visual art and writing that represent storytelling as it relates to witchcraft, real or imagined, throughout the ages. Opening Night and Full Moon Ritual  - October 24, 2018 
Interested in applying for CGS-M (SSHRC, NSERC) and/or an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS)? This session will provide students with further information about competitions, timelines and best practices. These are prestigious awards, and all full-time graduate students are encouraged to apply.
