OCAD University has announced that it will launch a new international initiative designed to bolster Canada’s position in the world of arts and culture. Over the next five years, the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project will bring leading international artists to Toronto for a residency placement at OCADU. The university states that the new program will connect a number of select students with visiting artists and renowned scholars. “We are thrilled beyond words to realize the launch of the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project,” said OCADU President Sara Diamond. “The opportunity to interact closely with ground-breaking international artists will shape the learning experience for OCADU students in a way that no classroom ever could, and heighten international awareness of Toronto as a vibrant contemporary art community.” OCADU
