CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
FIRST YEAR STUDENT EXHIBITION
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MARCH 10
A Labyrinth of Writing: Finding Your Story in Another Story
Exhibition will run March 31 – April 7
All first year students at OCAD U are invited to participate in an exhibit that will explore the role of writing in the creative process of art and design. This is an opportunity to showcase how you’ve used the writing process in your art and design projects, and to work with other students to turn your writing into new works of art and design that bring together multiple voices and stories.
Writing is both an individual and collective practice. We often write to explore ideas, figure out what we want to say, and develop our own voice and identity as authors. But our writing always also occurs in dialogue with other people’s ideas and words. How have you used writing in your art and design work this year? What new works of art, design, and storytelling can you create by bringing together other students’ submissions? What happens to your own work when it travels into, and is taken up within, other students’ project and stories?
Here’s how you can participate:
1. Send us your writing from a first-year class. We’ll accept all forms of writing (sketchbook pages, journal entries, Canvas discussions, reading responses, or essays). Your submission page can include images too, if it also contains writing. It doesn’t matter if the work isn’t perfect. We want to showcase all the ways you’ve used writing in your creative practice.
- Submit a PDF or Digital Image (jpeg format less than 5 mb)
- Include your name, student number, title of the work, course code and title, and instructor
2. Work with a team of other first year students and OCAD U faculty to curate the exhibit. We’ll meet weekly in March to create new art and design projects with the submissions and to curate the exhibition. Please join us on March 10 from 1 pm to 3 pm (Room 512 113 McCaul St.) to find out more about how to get involved!
