OCAD University's Art & Social Change Program

A minor in Art & Social Change offers students the opportunity to explore some of the most pressing social, political and ethical issues of our time. With the tenets of equality, diversity and social and environmental justice at the heart of this minor, and an investigation of the role that art and artists have and can play as catalysts of change, students pursuing this minor stand to expand the liberating powers of dialogue, dissent and collaboration as cultural practitioners engaged in local, national and global contexts.
