As part of the Yorkville Village Arts Festival, OCAD U will be celebrating the stunning creativity of its students, faculty and alumni through a retail Pop Up Shop at Yorkville Village until November 12, 2016. The OCAD U community is diverse and inventive, playing an active roll in change-making design and art production, both locally and around the world. The OCAD U Pop Up shop will showcase a small selection of this creative force. With art and objects from more than 50 artists and designers, this shop will offer a multitude of reasons to support local artisans. Come to the store to buy the popular Tkaronto vs. Akwe:kon t-shirts (Mohawk language for “Toronto vs. Everybody”) designed by Kaia’tanoron Bush for the Indigenous Visual Culture at OCAD University. Also on display, a diversity of pieces including finely crafted jewellery, hand-made books, limited edition scarves, stickers, toques, ceramics, bow-ties, prints, paintings, photography, quilts and more. Ninety per cent of the sales proceeds will be given to the creators and ten per cent will be donated back to OCAD U to support the administration of this exciting initiative.
