The Kaleidoscope Project is a two-part project that showcases the value that learning about cultures can bring to the art and design communities within OCAD U.

The First part is a film that sets the stage for the conversation following the interaction and reflection of sixteen participants who are students at OCAD. It showcases what we hope more people within the OCAD U community will do in response to the film. You can have a look at the trailer for the film here

 

"Presenting, The Kaleidoscope Project: Film & Open Discussion.

 

The short-film is a compilation of personal experiences and reflections of sixteen students at the university. It explores the importance of cultural interaction within the art and design worlds. The event will feature an OPEN DISCUSSION to allow for community engagement and feedback. We would like to hear your voices to find out ways in which we can make a stronger community at OCAD U.

The Second part is an installation, that will be introduced on Monday, March 6th, is a call to action by creating an interactive opportunity for the larger OCAD U community to add their voices to The Kaleidoscope Project. The installation is a reflective piece to the short-film. The installation is a 7ft x 3ft peg board that will be put up on the wall in the lobby. 

The installation is an interactive piece that requests the audience to select a coloured string, assigned to one of the three questions:

What is community?
What is culture?
What drives change?

Students are encouraged to interact with this installation by making connections between ideas and concepts that they feel aid the selected question. Everyone’s perspective is an equal contribution to this project. Join us by adding to the creation of a kaleidoscope of culture, community, and change.
