We’re recruiting a team of Sheridan students and recent graduates for Children’s Book Jam. The project pilots a new model for the production of illustrated children’s books that explore themes of social justice in which, breaking from current industry practices, the writer, illustrator, managing editor, and art director collaborte throughout the entire process.
Applications are due on 4 May 2021 by 5:00 PM.
We’re mobilizing our expertise in creative problem solving, innovation management, and the humanities to solve pertinent challenges in higher education and the creative industries.
Creative Humanities is an experiment in talent-orientated research. We’ve created new models that boost the career development of undergraduate students, regardless of their area of practice. Most humanities projects make ideas; we make talent.
We are building upon our track-record of impact by forging an alliance of community partners. Our goal is to mobilize Sheridan’s expertise in creativity, innovation, and culture in partnership with private, public, and not-for-profit organizations to bring transformative change to creative communities and industries.

Praise from Partners
“The opportunity to work with Sheridan students over the course of the three-year partnership was invaluable. Hearing their feedback, listening to their questions and having insight to their processes of creative thinking were tangible tools we could take back into the organisation and implement at TENT. Beyond that we were also able to bring Brandon, Prof. Jennifer Phenix, and Paola Di Barbora to our CAFF conference (back in 2019, in Windsor) where they led a creative problem solving (CPS) workshop with Fringe leaders from across Canada and the US. We received such positive feedback as to how this opportunity opened their eyes to ways of problem solving that they had not considered before.”

“After a year, we can say the benefit and value of the strategic planning sessions has been far-reaching in the organization and the implementation of these objectives has helped Breakthroughs Film Festival move forward in a positive and sustainable direction. We wouldn’t hesitate to collaborate with the Creative Humanities again, and encourage any arts leader to learn more about the impact their expertise in creative problem solving and creative leadership can bring to your organization.”
