The 6th annual Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher is geared towards graduating OCAD U Photography students. This year, students are offered the opportunity to participate in an extended group exhibition in the Hallway Galleries of Artscape Youngplace. The curatorial team at Artscape worked with faculty and CEAD to transform the Hallway Galleries into a showcase of emerging contemporary photographic practices, for the selected recipients.

As part of the Career Launcher, a jury selected an artist from the group exhibition and award them a featured solo exhibition during the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival in May 2020.

The Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers (CEAD) is excited to announce Bidemi Oloyede as the winner of the solo exhibition. CRCP graduate Dana Snow has been commissioned to write an essay to accompany the solo exhibition.
