Friday, September 11, 2015 - 8:00pm to 10:30pm

The OCAD U Student Gallery is where you should be to primp and preen to be fresh for the scene. DJ Amy Wood co-founder of Drunk Feminist Films will be pumping the jams for our afternoon pre-party and the amazing Miss Margot will deck you out with a fierce, new book look for the school year! We have a DIY nail art bar and cotton candy machine, so the sugar and tunes will be spinning. Leave on a sugar high from our Student Gallery Pre-Party before you check out Petra Glynt’s performance at Xpace.

Start your OCAD U adventure on a sweet note, Berghain might have Ice cream, but the Student Gallery has cotton candy. This is no time for summer time sadness, we want to see you here!
