The OCAD Student Union is looking to hire a student to perform at this year’s annual Winter Feast! Winter Feast started in response to the volume of international students that could not go home for the holiday break. It offers an opportunity for OCAD students to come together to share food, stories, and traditions, and to create a sense of community. This year the event will take place in person. The performance will take place at the in person event, and could be anything from poetry/creative writing, music, contemporary dance, stand-up comedy, DJ, singer, etc. We especially encourage international students to apply for this, but are open to all applications.
