OCAD U introduces 24-hour access test period: November 26 to December 12

 

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - 5:00am

We are pleased to announce that effective tonight, November 26 and until Friday, December 12, we are introducing 24-hour access to 100 McCaul (including the Sharp Centre for Design.) Please note the following:

  • Access is for current OCAD University students only (remember to bring your OCAD U ID) 
  • Access is to areas that are normally open during extended hours and do not require supervision by staff or a technician. This means there is no change to the hours of Shops and Studios (please consult the web for the up-to-date hours.) 
  • You may experience some interruptions in IT services as we do perform maintenance overnight. Some desktops computers are set to automatically power down and/or clear drives so we recommend not using those to avoid losing work. 
  • We will have Security circulating the building. Please report any safety concerns to the front desk.

This is a trial period. We will respond to questions and concerns as they arise and monitor usage in order to determine access hours for the end of next semester. Your feedback is welcome – please direct it to dfisher@ocadu.ca.

We'd like to thank the OCAD Student Union, who have worked with us on this issue for some time, and to the team who put together the Long Night Against Procrastination, who helped demonstrate the need for 24/7 study space and to the many staff and particularly the Security team, for making this test period possible.

OCAD University is pleased to announce the new peer-reviewed journal ab-Original: Journal of Indigenous Studies and First Nations and First Peoples' Cultures is now available. This special issue entitled “The Entangled Gaze: Indigenous and European Views of Each Other”1 co-edited by Dr. McMaster and Dr. Julia Lum (University of Toronto), contains ten essays. The Entangled Gaze shares its title and theme with the 2017 conference that was co-hosted by OCAD University and the Art Gallery of Ontario. The conference convened an international group of scholars and museum professionals from the fields of art history, anthropology, cultural studies and curatorial practice to explore the topic of how Indigenous and European artists have represented each other in historical art and visual culture.
