MEET THE BOARD
So, what does it mean to be an alum of one of the most prestigious art universities in Canada? It means you can tell anyone who will listen to your story that you studied about and made art at NSCAD. Our pride for this institution will never waiver as we weave through the ebbs and flows of change – and we have all seen changes at NSCAD. We have seen changes in campus locations, leadership, and even questions about inclusion. What is great about change is that it has the power to be good. As we look forward to intensifying the Port Campus and expanding our footprint along the harbour, we also look forward to how NSCAD will shape and mould the culture and community that makes this institution one of the most prestigious art universities in Canada.
As a new Member-at-Large (BFA 2005) I would like to hear from you and learn how you have thrived after graduation. What can your committee do to continue representing your interests? Two different ways the University is celebrating our alum are with the Film Festival being hosted April 24 – 26 at Cineplex Park Lane. And do you know what Craftism is? Tune in to Art Talk this March 21 to listen to Karin Jones (MFA 2018) and Carrie Allison (MFA 2018) as they discuss activism in art and craft, as well as how it affects their practices. Don’t be shy, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
