Call for artist submissions during Social Justice Week programming Oct 2019. Co-curators Michelle Beck and Dana Snow are seeking submissions from artists focused on climate justice, which can manifest as: imagined futures, stories concerning the earth and the tracks we leave on her, and concepts and strategies that help activate and mobilize communities.
Visit the lobby of 100 McCaul from October 21 to 25 to browse hundreds of gently-used art and design books and more! All proceeds support the library.
OCAD University’s Faculty of Art is hosting a group exhibition focusing on climate justice, opening October 21, and culminating in a panel titled “Creative action during climate crisis,” on November 1. The submission-based exhibition, co-curated by Michelle Beck and Dana Snow, focuses on the idea of a multispecies interconnectivity that makes every organism necessary to one another in their surrounding environs. Messmates are companions – in Latin “cum panis” – who share bread and rely on each other for survival. 
A workshop rooted in oral history and community collaboration, Talking Treaties artfully shares local Indigenous history and awareness.
feelSpace is seeking artworks for our inaugural online exhibition that deals with connections and relationships in digital spaces. Submissions are due on October 21st!
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.
