Onsite Gallery, OCAD University is happy to offer a free interactive guide for families and young visitors to creatively engage with our current contemporary art exhibition, How to Breathe Forever.

What is the family kit?

The family kit is a self-guided tour designed for families or younger visitors. It contains questions and activities to help younger audiences engage with the artwork within the exhibition.

The family kit has:

  1. A printed guide that includes questions and activities organized by artwork. It has three parts:
     
    1. Something to think about…
      This section has questions that makes the viewer have a closer look at the artwork in order to help them engage with the main ideas proposed by it. Great for any age from 3 up.
       
    2. Activity (each has its own name)
      These are didactic activities thought to stimulate the use of diverse senses as well as the imagination of the young visitors and their companions.
       
    3. Let’s continue the discussion!
      Questions with a higher level of complexity. They are meant for a teen audience and are critical-thinking oriented.
       
  2. Activity cards that have the same information in the guide, but that are easy to handle and carry along in the gallery.
     
  3. Family kit (the box) with diverse materials that should be provided for the activities.

 

Intended audiences

  • Children from 3 years old up, but toddlers may also join the fun.

How to Breathe Forever underlines the importance and interconnectedness of air, animals, land, plants and water. The belief that everything in the universe has a place and deserves equal respect is the core of this exhibition and positions our relations with others  ̶  including the ‘natural’ world  ̶  as active and reciprocal. The exhibition invites you to consider an expanded personhood that attentively collaborates and exchanges with living things. The exhibition brochure is available online here.

Once again, OCAD U’s Project 31 fundraising auction was a great success, raising much-needed funds for scholarships and bursaries for students in financial need and the purchase of specialized equipment. This year, Project 31 featured 39 works donated by 42 of OCAD U’s award-winning faculty members and alumni. This year’s auction raised $144,250 (gross) and since 2010, the event has raised more than $1 million (net).

Dear Members of the OCAD U Community:  At 4:45 p.m. on Friday afternoon, OCAD University received the devastating news that the government of Ontario has withdrawn provincial funding for the Creative City Campus (CCC). We are unwilling to accept this as a final decision.  Ontario’s competitiveness depends on OCAD University’s talent. Our institution delivers practical, technical, creative learning to fulfil the needs of Ontario’s labour market.
