Career Launcher: 401 Richmond Studio



The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers is excited to bring back the Illustration Studio Career Launcher for students in their graduating year. This fantastic opportunity will place students in a rent-free, downtown studio space for 1 year. Knowing the importance of networking and connecting with like-minded creative practitioners, the CEAD will help to connect these illustrators with potential clients and networks through studio visits and workshops. 

This is an amazing opportunity to become part of a larger creative community and connect with like-minded creative practitioners. Applications will be reviewed by Illustration program faculty members.

Recent Illustration grads Misbah Ahmed, Kima Lenaghan, Clayton Millard, and Aliya Ghare are the winners of the Illustration Studio Career Launcher, and will receive one year of studio space in 401 Richmond!

The Illustration Studio Career Launcher Award is made possible by the Dalglish Family Foundation. The opportunity is facilitated by the Illustration Program, the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, the support of the thesis instructors, and with special acknowledgment to Doug Panton.
