Nine students from the Faculty of Design have arrived in India to start the three-week Design Abroad: India course. Since the program began in 2013, this is the fourth cohort of OCAD U students to travel to India to engage in participatory, multi-disciplinary design projects with community-based organizations.

Follow the students on their journey as they co-design live projects by visiting the course blog.

Over the next three weeks, students will be posting about their daily activities and sharing their reflections about the projects and their experiences traveling and designing in India.
