Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community investigated various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U. We took this up through personal observation and in conversation with the staff at the Health and Wellness Centre. Our intention was not to suggest definitive policy changes nor do a rigourous quantitative research but rather to explore, as artists, through personal discovery and dialogue, what we might envision as an ideal – or even imaginary – healthy community for those who study, teach and work in art and design at OCAD U. The exhibition presents creative voices in dialogic as they imagine a healthy thriving community “pedagogy” for OCAD U. Project staff, students and faculty join in discussion in February at Research Wednesdays to share their experiences with this project.

Artists/Researchers: Jerad Beauregard, Rhys Castro, Tara Clews, Tania Costa, Hana Elmisry, Zen Huang, Cori Jin, Nataly          Kais, Angie Ma, Kaylee Meyer, Kais Padamshi, Cleopatria Peterson, Ariella Polisuk, Sam Young

Project Co-facilitators: Tal Sofia Braniss, Marta Chudolinska, Pam Patterson, and Robyn Shaw.

Thank you to Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean, FoA for providing assistance for mounting the Learning Zone exhibition, FCDC for the Teaching Expo Exhibit, and WIAprojects for the OISE exhibit. Thanks you as well to Marta Chudolinska, facilitator and provocateur extraordinaire and the Learning Zone for encouragement and direction, and Amanda Hotrum and Cathy Cappon, ODESI, for resources and support.

A special thank you to the Health and Wellness Centre (HWC) OCAD U for partnering with ADEL artists/researchers: Robyn Shaw, for taking on the role of one of the project facilitators who, with Courtney Ward, Nathan Klaehn, Alanna Fletcher, Tamara Aleong, Alex McLaren, Sarah Cree, Kaitlyn Young, met in many one-on-one conversations with students, and to the HWC administrator, Gloria Han for co-ordinating all these meetings.

20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades
20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
