A student-led project, with support from academic staff, faculty and the Office of Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives

Envisioned by OCAD U Student Vicky Avramopoulos, Vicky is bringing together people from across campus alongside some of OCAD U’s most talented print-making students and alumni, including Eli Howey (2015 printmaking medal winner) and Taikun Kambashi (Printmaking, 2014), to help create a handbook on how faculty and peers can best support LGBTQQI2S students in classrooms and beyond. 

The handbook is being created based on 4 to 6 open consultation sessions that will be held inviting students and alumni to share their experiences, recommendations and best practices. The guide will break down basic vocabulary and concepts, along with vignettes of student experience and tips and strategies for inclusive and critical pedagogy in and beyond the classroom, as well as resources.

Most importantly, this project is imagined and led by students, and will feature content centring the voices of students.

Consultation sessions open to OCAD U students and alumni:

May 27, 3 to 5 p.m.
June 2, 1 to 3 p.m.
June 10, 3 to 5 p.m.
June 18, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

This project was made possible by the OCAD U $1,500 Big Ideas Fund. Special shout outs to Anthea Black (Instructor, Faculty of Art), Nick Shick (Technician, Print-Making) & Mary Tremonte (Class Assistant, Print-Making) for on-going guidance and collaboration.
