Career Launcher: John St. BIA



In its 2nd year, the John St. Career Launcher offers graduating Illustration students from OCAD University the opportunity to work with the Toronto Entertainment District BIA on the John Street Art Project as part of the John Street Pedestrian Initiative (JSPI) in 2015.

The project is to design and to create a series of illustrations that connect the history of John St. with its contemporary urban footprint. Under the theme “Then and Now”, three recent graduates will be selected to work onsite developing illustrations for a set of chairs and a large mural.

Congratulations to Sophia Paas-Lang, Robert John Paterson, and Boen Jiang for being the winners of the John St. Career Launcher!

Also, congratulations to Heidi Philippa Berton and Emily May Rose Brown for being selected for University Avenue Mural Project!
