In 2006, Partners in Art collaborated with OCAD to raise $110,000 to launch OCAD’s inaugural Artist-in-Residence Program. Three internationally acclaimed artists, Rirkrit Tiravanija, ORLAN and Ann Hamilton, presented public lectures and participated in workshops with students during their time in Toronto. Entitled Nomadic Residents, the program has brought the world’s top practitioners of art to OCAD, increasing the university’s international profile, and enhancing the challenging academic and studio program offered at the university.
