CMCE has an Artist-in-Residence
program at OISE/UT. This exciting initiative allows students and faculty a
more substantial engagement with artist-scholars of international stature.
As part of their residency, artist-scholars participate in some or all of
the following activities: public lectures; visits to individual graduate and
pre-service classes and seminars; workshops on specific topics; research;
consultations with students and artists; production and/or post-production
of original media art in collaboration with an artist-run facility.
Under the auspices of
the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, CMCE initiated a pilot residency
for spring 2002, hosting Spencer Nakasako in February. Nakasako is the San
Francisco-based director who has received many international awards, especially
for his film and television work with disenfranchised Southeast Asian youth.
In addition to screening his films for the Toronto public, Nakasako held workshops
with practising and pre-service teachers and worked with a group of young
people in Toronto.
In the fall of 2002, artist-scholar
Dee Dee Halleck was in residency for the
month of November at CMCE, offering a special one-semester graduate course,
Media and Democracy.
We are pleased to announce
that in the fall of 2003, Guillermo Verdecchia will be in residence at CMCE
-- keep an eye on this site for further details in the fall!
