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!
