The exhibition features the work of three Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design (IAMD) students; Sana Khan, Casper Sutton-Fosman, Laura Butler, Nahun Flores, Paulete Poitras, and Veronica Waechter. The exhibition explores the theme of Art and Accessibility by showcasing the role of the curator as a facilitator of experience, opening a space for learning in relation to the artworks and concepts that are on view. 

Exhibiting works from artists Sana Khan, Casper Sutton-Fosman, Laura Butler, Nahun Flores, Paulete Poitras, and Veronica Waechter, Something to Say aims to explore how affect can aid in the experience of art. By offering different perspectives and presentation models the exhibition opens a space for each viewer to have an impactful experience with the exhibition. As a curatorial research exhibition, it is a collaboration between curator, artist and audience, supported by the virtual space.

We are excited to invite you to our SAS check-in group, “Measuring Growth”!

This group will take place twice per week starting at the beginning of the Spring 2021 term, where two Student Accessibility Advisors will work with students to create schedules to help meet assignment deadlines. Every Monday (“Blueprint Mondays”) we will work to develop weekly timetables with students. Every Thursday (“Thoughtful Thursdays”) students will casually reflect upon their past week with the group, noting what worked & what didn’t.

Students are encouraged to come to both sessions, but it’s not required. The main goal of the check-in group is to create a weekly schedule, that works for you!

Date: Every Monday and Thursday, starting May 17th – June 18th from 3-4pm

RSVP

Job Start On April 6, join us for an info session about JobStarts' Capability Program with Courtney Boudreau at JobStart.

JobStart’s Capability program assists persons with disabilities (visible or invisible) to enhance their employability skills and job prospects. With guidance from Job Coaches and Job Developers, PWD's can attend customized workshops to help prepare for their transition into the labour market. Participants are invited to attend pre-employment group workshops, after which they will receive support to acquire a 12-week paid work placement.

JobStart will be offering optional live virtual resume critiques at the event. This portion of the event will not be recorded. If you would like to receive feedback on your resume, please email a copy to explearningcentre@ocadu.ca with the Subject "Jobstart Workshop". The RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers has created resources to help folks get started on their resume materials. Check them out here:

We will be joined by Victoria Bacnis and Alison Nicholls from OCAD U’s Student Accessibility Services. Student Accessibility Services (SAS) provides supports and academic accommodations for all students with both temporary and permanent disabilities. Victoria and Alison will share information about accessing services through SAS and how advocating for your academic accommodation needs may translate to an employment setting.

Live auto-transcription will be available. The event will be recorded and made available afterwards. If you're unable to attend the event but would like to stay notified when the recording is available; or if you have any other questions, please email explearningcentre@ocadu.ca.

SAS is starting up Live Chat with your Accessibility Advisor.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 2pm, your Accessibility Advisor will be available on Microsoft Teams for a drop-in chat to answer any brief questions you may have.   

In the private Chat section, select the New Chat icon, and add the name of your Accessibility Advisor (Chelsea Good, Moira Ruthralingam, or Victoria Bacnis) to begin chatting with them.  If your advisor feels that the discussion would be better suited for a longer dedicated meeting, or if they are already at capacity during the session, they will arrange an alternative date/time to support you. 

Your Teams messages will only be responded to during the drop-in period of Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 2pm.  For inquiries outside of this time, please contact your Accessibility Advisor via e-mail.

If you are unsure who your Accessibility Advisor is, you can contact sas@ocadu.ca to ask. 

We hope to chat with you soon!

This year the one-day DEEP event will be the beginning of a series of challenge workshops that extend throughout the year. These workshops will address challenges that are important to all of us, but that don’t receive enough attention or investment because they are too complex or because the people that are most affected don’t have enough influence or power. We also hope you will get involved in many new and ongoing inclusive design projects. Our new projects are Code Learn Create and Project We Count. Code Learn Create is building inclusive educational coding tools, so that everyone can participate in this “new literacy”. We Count makes sure that people are not excluded from the data economy, and that data-based decisions are not biased against minorities, diversity and complexity. 

 

We are gathering our international partners to help us plan the next iteration of our Social Justice Repair KitFLOE and Platform Co-op Development Kit projects. 

 

The topics we will tackle are tough, but also personally relevant to everyone attending. Among the themes running through our discussions will be: 

  • ownership and agency in a data-driven world, 
  • how truth and value are determined, 
  • reversing rising financial disparity and political polarization, and 
  • the relationship between inclusion and sustainability.

We also intend to have fun and celebrate the opportunity to connect with old and new friends.
