OCAD U partners with IMFTO in COVID-19 recovery design program

September 15, 2020
OCAD University has partnered with It’s My Future Toronto (IMFTO) to train BIPOC youth in how to share their ideas about COVID-19 recovery with the City of Toronto through advertising, media, and policy. Professionals from various industries will lead students through “how-to” videos and online workshops that will teach them how to share their ideas and give them the opportunity to share their own stories. “I wanted to show how OCAD University’s design thinking and strategic approaches can bring the voices of the vulnerable to the development of policy recommendations,” explained OCAD U Faculty of Design Dean Dori Tunstall, who is also a member of IMFTO’s advisory committee, “especially as we face the impacts of COVID-19.”  OCAD U  (ON)
