Reelworld Film Festival
Reelworld Film Festival celebrates films from around the world that explore pressing issues and stories with social impact. The festival features a convergence of film, art, music, technology and conversation - bringing together an inclusive community of storytellers, educators, non-profits, social entrepreneurs, artists and philanthropists, to catalyze social impact through film and storytelling.
Onsite Gallery exhibits professional artists, designers and digital media makers, serving the OCAD University community and the general public. In preparation for the launch of Onsite Gallery’s new location in May 2017, our 2016 ONSITE/ programming imagines and creates what a public gallery can be.
Onsite Gallery’s education program is generously supported by Nexus Investment Management.
OCAD University's Art & Social Change Program
A minor in Art & Social Change offers students the opportunity to explore some of the most pressing social, political and ethical issues of our time. With the tenets of equality, diversity and social and environmental justice at the heart of this minor, and an investigation of the role that art and artists have and can play as catalysts of change, students pursuing this minor stand to expand the liberating powers of dialogue, dissent and collaboration as cultural practitioners engaged in local, national and global contexts.
CBC Inclusion & Diversity
We are committed to reflecting Canada’s diversity through our people, our programming content and our community relationships.
