CADN students are situated in the heart of downtown Toronto, Canada's largest city and home to many of the country's leading cultural institutions. These sites include significant collections, libraries and archives that provide students with living laboratories for research on all aspects of contemporary art history, design and new media art. Not only are students within walking distance of the city's diverse and vibrant art and design scenes, they are immersed in the broader energy of an international hub for dance, fashion, film, media and other industries.
