OCAD U partners with Toronto International Festival of Authors, puts students’ work on display

OCAD University has partnered with the Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA). Through the partnership, TIFA will host a holographic display called Poetic Projections where student writers perform their works. Visitors can pick up original pieces of writing as part of a fundraiser for the Creative Writing program’s journal. TIFA is also presenting a screening of OCAD Faculty of Arts & Science Instructor Ian Keteku’s mini-series Dreams in Vantablack, which features 12 Black youth poets, some of whom are from the Creative Writing program. “We are thrilled to see our students shine, bringing their words to life both on and off the page in what is a unique and dynamic festival environment,” said OCAD U Chair of Creative Writing Catherine Black.
