Now in its 7th year, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 exhibitions and events. Emphasizing the city as a hub for creativity, TO DO takes design and art out from the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. For the first time, this year the York University/Sheridan College Program in Design participated in the festival through an exhibition at Gallery 50. Inviting audiences to “Engage in the Unexpected”, the graduating class unveiled a preview of YSDN2017, the branding philosophy behind their capstone showcase. Read More
