The IArts Residency Program brings the richness of Indian visual and material arts to OCAD U

A biannual, six-week artist in residence program for an emerging artist or designer from India, IArts allows artists to increase their international exposure, to build relationships with Toronto communities and to explore innovative forms of creative practice. During the residency, the artist will have access to OCAD U facilities, interact with students and faculty, and interface with the many Canadian artistic and cultural communities connected to OCAD U. OCAD U students will be exposed to the artist’s thought and practice, taking part in a series of collaborative learning experiences to engage with new contemporary art and design processes and to build global awareness.
