Urban agriculture has piqued your curiosity? This interactive and sensorial workshop is perfect! Assisted by an Alvéole beekeeper, you will explore the concepts of pollination and the vulnerability of insects in the context of large-scale agriculture. Finally you’ll consolidate your discovery of the links between these pollinators and human food through sensory activities with actual products of pollination - flowers, fruits and vegetables!

This workshop coincides with the annual Plan Sale hosted by the Learning Zone and grOCAD!

Due to limited space, participation is first-come-first-served. Workshop will begin at 1:45pm sharp.

Death and Dying Discussions is a mini-symposium on design for end of life running in conjunction with DesignTO (Toronto Design Offsite Festival, January 18-27) and Health Design Studio at OCADU and Taboo Health. The symposium will provide an opportunity to share experiences of the changing landscape of end of life and open dialogue about the multiplicity of ways in which design collaborations might push the boundaries of design to engage with end of life issues. 
The new OCAD U Creative Professionals-In-Residence program is a mentorship initiative created to support the career success of current OCAD U students and recent alumni. This winter’s residents are Jessica Leong and Basil AlZeri.

20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades
20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
