What is the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers?

Established in 2013, the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) sits alongside the other student-focused departments in the portfolio of the Vice-Provost, Students & International at OCAD U.

The CEAD is committed to supporting the early-career advancement of all students and recent alumni at OCAD U. Our team delivers specialized programs and services that connect individuals to meaningful opportunities, communities of practitioners, skill-building resources and facilitated learning experiences.

The work of the CEAD is delivered across our Career Development and Experiential Learning Program portfolios.

The CEAD is particularly grateful to a range of outside funding partners who enable our full-time staff, on-campus student workers, and a network of contributing professional practitioners, to deliver impactful programs and services.
