Proud At OCAD U Art Show

Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - 6:00pm to Friday, June 29, 2018 - 6:00pm

Proud at OCAD U coordinators, Casey Helm and Teddy Schaub curated this exhibition and here is their perspective on this art show:

The PROUD at OCAD U Exhibition features the work of LGBTQ+ identifying students here at OCAD. Art Exhibition spaces can be inaccessible spaces, especially for those whose identities intersect in different ways. The theme is simple: there is none! The participants were encouraged to bring in work they felt like showing off. PROUD is a community space and focuses on claiming our own space here at OCAD. Copies of the PROUD Community Zine are also available for free in the Learning Zone!

Participants list:

Casey Helm

Jazmin Cordon-Ibanez

Rachel Finlay

J. Lee Bertram-French
