The OCAD U Zine Library is celebrating our 10-year anniversary on November 14th. We hope you can join us as we celebrate the amazing and potentially transformative power of zines!

The collection’s founder, Alicia Nauta, will open the evening with a short talk about their reasons for starting the collection and the importance of zines to their life. This will be followed by a short show and tell by various students talking about zines that changed their lives.

The night will feature even more zine fun with snacks, collaborative zine making, button making, a zine reading nook, and a roundtable discussion with zine creators organized by students of Prof. Sheila Sampath’s Nano Publishing class.

The ZINE POWER exhibition will feature work by 15 artists from the OCAD U and Toronto zine community.

MAAD Faculty Dorie Millerson and Lynne Heller are presenting Research Wednesdays at the Learning Zone.
What does “handmade” mean in the digital age? OCAD U faculty Lynne Heller and Dorie Millerson (MAAD chair) will consider the place of digital craft at OCAD University from the perspectives of faculty, staff and technicians. Developed organically out of the everyday experiences of practitioners at OCAD U in Material Art & Design (MAAD), a department rooted in craft processes and materiality, the presentation will question how digital craft methods are changing teaching and learning in the studio and speculate how to understand objects that are produced by digital tools instead of through embodied making methods.
