OCAD University’s Faculty of Art welcomes Veronika Ivanova as the Junior Managing Editor to support the upcoming Faculty of Art’s publication celebrating the history of the Nomadic Residency. Veronika will report to the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Art, and will assist in research, editing, and production activities to ensure timely delivery of a quality publication.
Launched in 2006 with the generous support of Partners in Art, Nomadic Residents aims to inspire and influence the OCAD University community and the public by featuring artists and thinkers from around the world whose work questions issues such as travel, mobility, displacement, dislocation and homelessness, as well as the speed or instability of modern life. In bringing these innovative and diverse individuals to take up temporary residence at OCAD U, Nomadic Residents joins here to there, the local to the global and the provisional and the permanent. The series continues with the generous support of the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation.
