Hi! I am adé abegunde. I’m located in Toronto and I’m in my final year of Environmental Design, minoring in Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation.
I like to create work that’s primarily video-based. I recently released the first episode of a docuseries I’ve been developing about the music scene in Abuja, Nigeria—called Sounds of the Dreamers—available to watch on YouTube.
I really want to learn how to sketch. My verbal communication is very strong and would like to get to the point where my visual communication skills are as solid. My biggest challenge with remote learning these past few months is the fact that all my different spaces have now merged into one. In the past, I had clearly defined boundaries between my personal, professional and academic life but now everything has kind of meshed into a single screen. I am really looking forward to graduating. I literally cannot wait.
