Draw to Perform visits OCAD U is a two day event, curated by Ram Samocha. Samocha is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in the UK. Samocha is the founder of Draw to Perform, an international symposium for Drawing Performance. 

Day one of the symposium will feature live performances by local and international artists. Day two will open with an artist talk by Ram Samocha, followed by workshops in the Great Hall. 

The workshops will explore drawing as performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, process and performance. Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. The resulting works will be exhibited in the Great Hall during the Life Studies exhibition, running the same week. 

For the workshops, participants will need to bring basic drawing materials such as graphite, charcoals, chalks, Conté, ballpoint pen, acrylic paints, black ink, brushes, and masking tape. Paper will be provided for the workshop. 

Free admission
