NSCAD launches 125th anniversary website

March 1, 2012

This year marks the 125th anniversary of NSCAD University, which has created a website where visitors are encouraged to discover the stories behind the Halifax-based arts institution. The homepage emerges as a block of squares of various, vibrant colours, with the number "125" shaped in white. Inside the block are some pictures of members of the NSCAD community, which link to these individuals' profiles. The website includes even more stories from university community members, categorized under the themes of "global relevance," "breakthrough art," "business success," "engaged in community," and "a rich history." The site also features a letter from Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter on the impact of NSCAD. Celebrations kick off this month, which NSCAD is calling the "March of Anna," in honour of the institution's founder, Anna Leonowens, who is the "I" in The King and I. The first event will be a sing-along film screening of The King and I today at NSCAD's Bell Auditorium. NSCAD 125
