ABOUT ART & SOCIAL CHANGE STUDENT COMMITTEE:
The Art & Social Change Student Committee is a group of OCAD U students and alumni whose goal is to unify social justice and its integration into artistic practice. We put into the forefront urgent matters affecting the student body, staff and faculty on campus. Some of these issues include (but are not limited to) environmental justice, sexual violence, student poverty and housing, combating racism, as well as decolonizing the curriculum. Through various student-led initiatives, we aim to raise awareness of equity and accessibility issues, and build a strong social justice community on campus.

Monday, November 23, 2015 - 3:15pm

OCAD University President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Sara Diamond addressed a capacity crowd of business leaders, government representatives and other stakeholders at the Toronto Region Board of Trade. Her topic was Art and design in the connected world.

In her talk, Dr. Diamond discussed various ways creativity and imagination contribute to the skills and strategies necessary for success in a connected world. “There are three vectors through which our world is increasingly connected,” Diamond noted: “the Internet of Things, the exponential growth of and reliance on data and the globalization of culture.”

Dealing in turn with each of those three subjects, Diamond shared examples of exciting work being done by OCAD U faculty and alumni. These included art- and design-driven innovations in fields such as health care and wellness, entertainment, gaming, urban planning, communication and energy production.

Diamond concluded by briefly introducing attendees to OCAD U’s Ignite Imagination private and public fundraising campaign, and by taking several questions from audience members.
