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:

The Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Ryerson University’s Digital Media Experience Lab

OCAD University’s Emerging Centre for Artists & Designers

This project would not have been possible without the funding support Ryerson and OCAD University.
