The Impact Exchange hosts activities that seek to facilitate meaningful connections among emerging creative practitioners, establishes opportunities that will contribute to their professional growth and fosters knowledge tied to their ability to generate income, create positive social impact and navigate specialized sectors. 

Led by the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, the program methodology consists of providing a cohort of emerging artists & designers with experiential learning modules, activities and events which will draw upon a community of subject matter experts and practitioners who are demonstrably rooted in, or committed towards, social innovation. The approach has developed rigorous objectives and tailoured solutions suitable for OCAD U’s students, which address the nature of a specialized university, yet are exploratory enough to allow for incidental learning.
