Introducing participants to the expanded field of visual communication and the broad definition of the discipline. This workshop is an exploration in research, concept development, illustration, photography, and typography.
Participants will be given a theme, and are required to research and develop the concept through a series of two or more over-sized posters. The objective is to create a cohesive and unique solution to a given problem. This workshop is meant to challenge design thinking, processes, methods, and to help participants explore typography and composition in an experimental and purposeful way.
Come out and get your hands dirt-y with grOCAD! This workshop is about propagating common houseplants such as spider plants, golden pothos, jade and snake plants. We'll talk about the basics of plant propagation and get some baby plants started. All the materials will be provided and the baby plants will later be sold at the Plant Sale to generate funding to maintain our current garden projects.
grOCAD is a group of students, faculty and staff who are working together to integrate plant life to our everyday experience by cultivating areas in and around OCAD U’s campus. grOCAD’s aim is to increase healthy food accessibility, encourage discourse about how plants improve quality of life and heighten awareness to urban agricultural practices.

Attend grOCAD's Plant Propagation Workshop!
grOCAD is an open group of students, faculty and staff collaborating to develop urban agriculture on and off campus, exploring themes of biophillia, food security and community building through plant life. We believe that the natural world and the human world are one and the same, and work to bridge this constructed divide in daily life. grOCAD is involved in on-campus installations, research, promotion of student and community work, gallery shows and publications relating to sustainable urbanism.
What should graduate students know about copyright before incorporating portions of these protected works into theses or MRPs? How can students ensure broad dissemination of their own work while affirming their rights using tools such as Creative Commons licences? OCAD U librarians will discuss these questions and others pertinent to thesis/MRP production, provide an introduction to Canadian copyright law and suggest a framework for evaluating rights issues when using the work of others.
ACCESSIBILITY: Accessibility is important to us. If you require accommodations due to a disability in order to participate fully in this event, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
Sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies, this session will assist participants in cultivating accountable classrooms and respectfully “calling out” problematic classroom interventions. In groups, participants will be invited to work through challenging scenarios that offer an opportunity to foster techniques for engaging in critical social justice conversations. It is important to be cognizant of fellow students’ self-esteem during these conversations, but also be willing to risk discomfort in order to address discriminatory conduct.
