VIVID – NSCAD University

Dear Universities:

I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. Today we are pleased to announce that NSCAD and its Alumni Association are relaunching VIVID, our digital magazine for the NSCAD Community. In our socially distanced world, now is the perfect time.

A big part of our vision for our digital mag/newsletter is to foster the strong relationships we have as alumni; we want to hear from you, share your updates, and build connections. Please send us your news. Keeping in touch is easy! Reach out to

There is not a single one of us who has not been personally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our world is in a state of turmoil. Our question for you is:

What have you been up to during this period of social distancing? Has it affected your practice? Have you found it difficult, or a source of new inspiration?

Alumni Association Vice-President Duane Jones, Founder of Art Pays Me, has been creating a daily sketch throughout self-isolation. He is launching our #KeepCreatingNSCAD project. Please check it out also, contribute your work.

Lastly for now, our next edition of VIVID will welcome to our newest alumni, the NSCAD class of 2020. We look forward to celebrating them!

Until then, be well.
Cameron Jantzen (BDes 2003)
President, NSCAD Alumni Association
