Creative In Residence Program - Textile Musuem of Canada

 

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 8:30am

The select participants will be integrated into the daily life of the Museum during each three-month residency. Through access to resources and mentorship, they will advance their own creative practice, challenging both themselves and Museum visitors to engage with art, craft, and design in new and innovative ways through participation in demonstrations, public programs, performance, and conversation in the galleries. This is an opportunity to re-imagine the museum experience, pushing the notion of what a museum can be – for visitors, the creative community, and the Museum itself. THIS PROGRAM IS SUPPORTED BY A SEED GRANT FROM THE ONTARIO TRILLIUM FOUNDATION.

As part of the OCADU and Ontario Tech (UOIT) Digital Human Experience initiatives, please be aware of the upcoming VRTO development workshop on designing VR experiences.
The province’s leading universities focused on technology and design have teamed up to forge a new model for the delivery of post-secondary education in Ontario: together OCAD U and Ontario Tech University will develop dynamic new ways of learning, curriculum, programs and research capacities.

Students from OCAD U and Ontario Tech University had a unique opportunity to collaborate in a virtual reality design workshop at VRTO – The Virtual and Augmented Reality World Conference and Expo (June 1 to 3, 2019). In addition to student attendees at the workshop, the event included joint OCAD U and Ontario Tech teams of students facilitating, and in some cases leading, sessions. Participants were invited to “jump into the digital human experience,” with no prior experience required. All that was needed was a “willingness to learn and an interest in VR.”
ontechu + ocadu partnership
Employers now have a single touchpoint to draw on the talent pools at both OCAD U and Ontario Tech University. OCAD U’s Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers and Ontario Tech’s Career Centre have joined forces to meet the advanced needs of recruiters and collaborators. This uniquely coordinated approach between institutions means they can offer the opportunity to have one conversation about the full scope of employers’ needs, giving them access to the broadest possible range of talent solutions
