Winter Clothing Drive 2017*

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 10:00am to Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 4:00pm

We are looking for gently used or new:

> hats/gloves/mittens
> t-shirts
> socks
> and winter accessories

All donations will be distributed at the Allan Garden Food and Clothing Share (Sundays, 12-3 PM, Allan Gardens, Sherbourne/Carlton Streets).

As the city of Toronto continuously shuts down shelters and emergency services to our friends in homeless or low-income situations, and as rates and rent rise unrelentingly amidst a city bursting with wealth and austerity, we turn to community to help in hard times. We hope to see you soon, and with peace to all. Please spread the word and let your friends and family know!"

* This is a student-run initiative, three years running, which #ocaducampuslife is pleased to help promote.

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Join us for #3 in our 4-part series of creative art & design workshops taught by OCAD U students. 

Needle-Felting Workshop with Sydney Madia 
This workshop will begin with a short presentation of Sydney's work, along with other artists working in the medium. Participants will be introduced to the tools, basic techniques and safety tips of needle-felting through a step by step creation of their own small project. Students will take home a small felted apple and, if they like, can take home their felting needle for possible future projects. If participants would like, they can create their own project while still learning from the demo. All materials will be provided. 

Workshops are free and open to current students at OCAD U. 

This workshop series is presented in partnership by the OCAD U Library's Learning Zone and the Writing & Learning Centre and supported by funding from the First Generation Program, administered by the WLC.

Venue & Address: 
Learning Zone, 113 McCaul Street, Level 1, Also accessible from 122 St. Patrick Street

Photography in Canada:
1960–2000

Bringing together more than 100 works by 71 artists — including Raymonde April, Edward Burtynsky, Lynne Cohen, Angela Grauerholz, Michael Snow, Jeff Wall and Jin-me Yoon — it explores how the medium articulated the role of art and the artist in an ever-changing world, along with differing ideas of identity, sexuality and community. Formulated around themes such as conceptual, documentary, urban landscape and portrait, this exhibition celebrates the enormous growth of the practice, collection and display of photography over more than four decades.
