OCAD University celebrated the launch of This Art Works! along with Madeleine Co. and CBC at the Gardiner Museum on July 13.  A new digital CBC series, This Art Works! airing on the CBC Arts online platform, profiles many OCAD U students and recent alumni whose work deals with art and social change.

Dr. Alia Weston, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and Zev Farber, Manager, Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers were instrumental in getting this project off the ground on behalf of OCAD University.

Hosted by Amanda Parris (host of CBC Arts’ Exhibitionists) the launch featured an exclusive screening of two episodes. The 10-episode series provides a peek into the curious and often magical behind-the scenes processes of socially innovative artists working today.
