Come and Celebrate Learning Zone’s 5th Anniversary & the Launch of ReUse Depot February 3rd

LZ celebrates 5th anniversary with the launch of ReUse Depot, February 3, 2015The Learning Zone invites you to join us February 3rd to celebrate our 5th Anniversary with the exciting launch of the ReUse Depot, a new permanent art and design material swap space.

One artist’s trash is another designer’s treasure has been the guiding foundation behind a series of successful events held at OCAD U over the past several years—Materials Trading Post, the Green Exchange and OCAD U Recycles.

The ReUse Depot is an important and great opportunity for artists and designers to up-cycle, re-purpose or reuse materials that can inspire, explore creativity, or reduce students financial burden while redirecting the material from landfill. It’s a location for donating used but usable art & design materials and/or finding used items that will be useful to your creative practice.

ReUse Depot is a collaborative partnership between these departments: the Indigenous Visual Culture program (INVC), the Library’s Learning Zone, the Office for Diversity, Equity & Sustainability (ODESI), Facilities Planning & Management and Student Management. The development of this project is also supported by the First Generations program, IT Services & AV Loans.

ReUse Depot, Tuesday February 3rd, 4:00 pm-7:00 pm at the Learning Zone

OCAD U Library’s Learning Zone is a studio-base library space that provides an experimental and collaborative workspace to members of the OCAD U community. In 5 years the Learning Zone has grown, and will continue to grow as a collaborative environment. Check out our gallery below as we share some of the highlights from past events with faculty, students and members of Toronto arts community.

Celebrate with us on Tuesday February 3rd—with fresh cooked and healthy treats from the Student Union’s Hot Lunch program, treats from the Student Union’s cafe and LZ birthday cake!
