This theme can be interpreted any way you wish, and be expressed in any medium! The pages will be compiled and printed as a limited-edition risograph bookwork to be included in OCAD University and other local collections. The launch event will also feature a PechaKucha where interested publication participants will have the opportunity to speak about their work, their inspiration and anything else they choose!
