Guest Series invites artists, designers and creative professionals who have a specialized practice or area of interest to come to OCADU and give a talk, hold a workshop, studio visits or participate in a class critique. The idea behind Guest Series is to exchange stories regarding professional process and to inform and help bridge gaps in our own individual processes, practices and journeys ahead.
Guest Series is organized by Jessie Holmes, IAMD MFA Candidate at OCAD University and Student Career Ambassador at the OCAD U Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers and Erica Stocking, IAMD MFA Candidate at OCADU.
