Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community investigated various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U. We took this up through personal observation and in conversation with the staff at the Health and Wellness Centre. Our intention was not to suggest definitive policy changes nor do a rigourous quantitative research but rather to explore, as artists, through personal discovery and dialogue, what we might envision as an ideal – or even imaginary – healthy community for those who study, teach and work in art and design at OCAD U. The exhibition presents creative voices in dialogic as they imagine a healthy thriving community “pedagogy” for OCAD U. Project staff, students and faculty join in discussion in February at Research Wednesdays to share their experiences with this project.

Artists/Researchers: Jerad Beauregard, Rhys Castro, Tara Clews, Tania Costa, Hana Elmisry, Zen Huang, Cori Jin, Nataly          Kais, Angie Ma, Kaylee Meyer, Kais Padamshi, Cleopatria Peterson, Ariella Polisuk, Sam Young

Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community has been investigating various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U. We have taken this up through personal observation and in conversation with the staff at the Health and Wellness Centre. Our intention has been not to suggest definitive policy changes nor do a rigourous quantitative research but rather to explore, as artists, through personal discovery and dialogue, what we might envision as an ideal – or even imaginary – healthy community for those who study, teach and work in art and design at OCAD U. This exhibition presents creative voices in declamatory dialogic as they imagine a healthy thriving community for OCAD U.
