OCAD’s very own Kotama Boubane speaks about Proof’s impact on emerging artists:
“I was one of the artists in Proof 9 at Gallery 44 along with other great photographers like Stacey Tyrell and Althea Thauberger. Being apart of a Proof show is a catalyst for many emerging artists in getting valuable exposure and experience within the Toronto art scene and nationally. I was able to connect with other artists, curators and administrators that helped further my artistic endeavors. I currently teach in the photography Department at OCADU and York University and am represented in Toronto by ESP – Erin Stump Projects.” – Kotama Bouabane

ART CAMP 2016 brings together 14 emerging artists from OCAD University and Ryerson University to build community and create art during a five month residency program. Participants were selected through an open call to artists in their 2nd year of study through to recent graduates who are enrolled/alumni from a program within OCAD U’s Faculty of Art, Indigenous Visual Culture or Ryerson’s School of Image Arts. Working alongside faculty supervisors Robyn Cumming (Ryerson University), Jennifer Long & Jennie Suddick (OCAD U), the participants attended professional practice workshops, studio visits, talks, film screenings, brainstorming sessions, critiques and learned new artistic skills.
A special thanks goes out to programming support from:

This workshop is designed to guide and outline the basic requirements of Graduate Schools in Fine Arts/Visual Arts in various Canadian post-secondary institutions. As one of the key components in the grad application is your visual support material, the workshop will focus on how to compile visual documentation in order to prepare comprehensive and focused visual representation of participants’ art practices. In addition, instructor June Pak will discuss some of the necessary elements in writing a concise letter of intent.
This workshop will be a great opportunity for participants to share information on different graduate schools. Prior to attending the workshop, participants should make sure to do some research on the schools that they are interested in, such as articulating what they are looking for in a graduate program, and why they are interested in that particular program.
Things to bring:
– Participants are encouraged to bring a draft copy of their letter of intent (this could be in point form as well).
– Digital versions of participants’ artwork (.jpg, .mov, .wav. etc.)
*Students will receive member’s rates for this workshop
