FLASHforward! Orientation & Welcome, September 2 & 3

August 12, 2009

FLASHforward! logoAttention new students! FLASHforward! Orientation & Welcome 2009, where your university memories begin, is quickly approaching!

Wednesday, September 2 kicks off with a pancake breakfast. OCAD’s welcome activities, coordinated by Campus Life and the OCAD Student Union (OCADSU), include the participatory installation Memory Machine, created and directed by artist Lo Bil, working with OCAD student designers Filip Anton (fourth-year, Integrated Media), Jaspal Birdi (fourth-year, Drawing & Painting) and Vladimir Milosevic (second-year, Graphic Design). This massive interactive event will take you beyond the cognitive to enable your own physical “memory machines”!
