The WildCard is a multi-faceted arts show open to OCAD students, staff & public, that is committed to uplifting local emerging artists and performers by providing them the time and space, to showcase their talents and allow them to network with other creatives - think of a combination of an open mic & an artist alley. We are striving for an event that not only provides the platform for emerging artists, comic acts, musicians and more, to showcase their skill sets, but also provide aid to the lack of community that is often felt at OCAD U. We are also hoping that the Wildcard can be a space for students to destress prior to the very busy exam period.

We have a fantastic lineup of artists, designers & performers for the evening and are looking forward to sharing them with everyone!
