Wednesday, October 21, 2015 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

OCAD University's social innovation hub, Impact Collective invites you to join us for our speaker series:

This month, Impact Collective hosts Trevor Plint, Ph.D candidate and junior fellow at Massey College as part of its inaugural year of its social innovation festival.

Art Supplies of the Future
The audience will journey on a meandering tour through the foothills of scientific exploration, fields still in their infancy, and recent landmark discoveries. To illuminate these sometimes obscure areas, ideas will be illustrated through the lens of the potential art project, with a mixture of detail and overarching possibilities. Participants require no specific scientific knowledge, but an open mind and an appetite for novelty!

About Trevor Plint:
Trevor Plint is a Ph.D candidate in the faculty of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at The University of Toronto. His area of research centres around understanding the interactions between light and matter in organic semiconducting materials. He is a Junior Fellow at Massey College, a graduate college founded on the principle of interdisciplinary exchange. In addition to a lifelong love of art, he is fascinated by the interconnections between the aesthetic experience and the act of scientific discovery.
