Hello, community!

OCAD U’s 2022 Inclusive Design (MDes) cohort is inviting you to the launch
of Elements of Inclusion, an interactive virtual exhibition featuring
preliminary research reflecting the diverse and inclusive practices of the
featured cohort. The exhibition is being launched with an online event on
August 11, 2021 that will include a panel discussion and Q&A.

The virtual exhibition will include an introduction to Inclusive
Design, the unprecedented cohort and their individual research topics.
Visitors are encouraged to support and advance the cohort’s efforts by
responding to the visitor experience surveys, which have been integrated
into the virtual exhibition platform.

   a brief introduction to the cohort, panel discussion and Q&A. The event

The cohort is entering their second year of study and are excited to
present their preliminary work in preparation for their emerging Major
Research Projects (MRP). Through their 2021 summer studio, the students
have been exploring the interrelationships of inclusive design theory and
methods with art, design and communication. Guided by their professors,
guest speakers from the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum,
the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and Surrey Place, preliminary
research, and literature reviews, the cohort has considered what it means
to communicate a group exhibition in a meaningful and inclusive way.

Hope you can join us!
