OCAD University is excited to be offering this collaborative course with Joshibi University of Art and Design in Toronto’s sister city of Sagamihara, part of the Greater Tokyo Area. Joshibi University was the first fine art institution in Japan for women, and the oldest private art school in the country.

OCAD Universityは、トロントの姉妹都市である相模原市にある女子美術大学との共同授業を提供することになりました。女子美術大学は、日本で初めての女性のための美術学校であり、日本で最も古い私立美術学校です。

With students at Joshibi University of Art and Design this course, led by Associate Professors Nicole Collins (OCAD U) and Linda Dennis (Joshibi U) will deepen student’s capacity to collaboratively address issues of Eco-feminism. Through responsive artwork in relation to the environmental crisis students will exchange digital material from their respective homes. Discussions work to build understanding of connection, materiality and their personal positionality to place. Lectures and demonstrations will introduce students across both Universities to current global feminist art practices, sustainable material explorations and the role of “touch” as a connective action. Student-driven research and experimentation with artmaking created from a home studio environment will be organized into an online exhibition.
