Critical Engagements functions in-between an artist talk/screening, and a workshop to combine these elements to engage the OCAD U student body/faculty and surrounding community on housing issues. The housing crisis and increasing levels of poverty affect all of us. Critical Engagement is a concrete example of artist working with community, for the community.
This event was made possible with the help from: Art and Social Change Committe, Culture Shifts, and the OCAD SU.
