Soft Spin offers a fresh view of the hard-surfaced symmetry of the space with the playful interruption of five enormous fabric forms, gently twirling overhead. Colour, texture, movement, and decidedly flirtatious forms invite visitors to look up and embrace the unexpected, highlighting the ever-present potential for encounters with unforeseen pleasure and drama in the day-to-day.

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.
Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community investigated various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U.
