Kendra Yee (b. 1995, Tkaronto/ Toronto) is an arts practitioner that seeks to materialize the truths and fictions of memory. Yee pulls tales from; personal stories, lived experience and collective narratives to develop site-specific installations that carve alternative archives. Yee has programmed and exhibited with: The Art Gallery of Ontario, MOCCA, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, The Art Gallery of Burlington, OCAD U, Art Metropole, Xpace Cultural Centre, Patel Brown Gallery, Gallery 44, The Letter Bet, Art Toronto, and The Artist Project. They are currently preparing for a solo-exhibition for spring 2022, taking place at Heavy Manners, Los Angeles.

jes sachse is a Toronto-based performer, artist and curator obsessed with disability culture & the age of the internet. Living across the blurred lines of autism, genetic disability, gender fluidity and madness, they are currently working on their first illustrated novel, Gutter, which will portray these dilemmas through a multi-modal narrative form, reflecting at once on both a crip navigation of contemporary culture, and the permeation of traumas in spaces of invisibilized violence.

The Time Being is an ongoing digital collaboration between lens-based artists in Canada. Formed in 2020, The Time Being was initiated by Eva Kolcze and Jessica Thalmann. The project began as a means to collaborate during the COVID-19 pandemic, with attention paid towards the sites, spaces, and environments visited and inhabited during time in isolation. However, the breadth and depth of the project has been extended by collaborating with eight other artists with the support of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the CBC. Each ruminate on the continued experience of instability; including, lockdowns and stay-at-home orders while ultimately, reflecting on the ways life has changed since the pandemic began. In 2021, 'The Time Being' was exhibited as a video installation & digital project at Angell Gallery, curated by Noah Gano. The current iteration of the project which encompasses newly commissioned photographs and videos from eight artists & a series of podcast interviews.

OCAD U 2020 TEACHING EXPO

Challenging Our Assumptions: Towards More Inclusive Ways of Teaching and Learning

Friday, January 17th, 2020 9:00 am - 5:00 pm 113 McCaul St, Level 5

Registration is now open!

REGISTER HERE

Join us for this full-day event dedicated to reflecting upon our teaching and learning practices through workshops, presentations, facilitated discussions and demonstrations of class activities. This year’s theme invites you to consider how we, as educators, practitioners and scholars, need to challenge our assumptions—about our students, classrooms, disciplines, creative practices, institutional policies and ourselves.

Reflecting on our assumptions and perspectives will deepen our understanding of the multi-faceted and diverse histories and backgrounds of our learners, colleagues and institutional policies and practices. We will also engage in discussion and activities grounded in the principles of inclusive teaching and Universal Design for Learning, an approach to teaching and learning that values reflection and embeds equity, diversity and accessibility into our practices.

This year’s expo kicks off with a pre-conference workshop on Anti-Ableism and Universal Design by Dr. Jay Dolmage, Professor and Associate Chair of English at the University of Waterloo and Founding Editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. There will be two offerings of the workshop the day before the expo, Thursday, January 16th.

The University of Toronto Hyperloop Team is looking to pair top Engineering talent with exceptional OCAD design and marketing. UTHT brings a new energy to Canadian teams competing in Elon Musk’s hyperloop competition hosted by SpaceX in California. With potential speeds of up to 1000km/h, hyperloop transportation could make travel between Toronto and Montreal less than 40 minutes and zero-emission. Our 80+ competition members are spread across 4 teams with 200+ additional members attending UTHT events and workshops. As members of our competition team, OCAD students would be immersed in a totally multi-disciplinary, startup-like environment, with the opportunity to craft a personalized story and image. OCAD students will also have the opportunity to design concepts for the future of transportation infrastructures, such as pod interiors or Hyperloop stations.

Come work with us! Please contact us at hyperloop@utoronto.ca, and stay tuned for our information session at OCAD this fall.

What we’re looking for: Photographers Videographers Video editors Graphics designers Website developers Content creators Industrial designers Architects
