Welcome To The 2021
NSCAD Design Grad Show

About The Show

An outro marks the end of something. In music, it is often a song that provides closure to an album. For the students of NSCAD University’s Design Studio 6 course, Outro marks the culmination of their degree project and for many in this graduating class, the conclusion of their degree studies.

A part of the Design Studio 6 course taught by Glen Hougan and Huschang Pourian, students were asked to identify a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal and develop a solution based upon one of its targets. Students were provided with seven weeks to research and communicate the topic of their self-directed project, followed by five weeks to ideate, and develop a final solution.

Outro Design Grad Show is a forward-looking exhibition of student work, presenting a variety of solutions to vital issues affecting the future of our planet. On May 5th, we invite you to explore the design process, examine our proposals and join us in envisioning a better future.


Sustainable Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
