Project Fusion 4.0
“To use collaboration to make change and have an impact”
-Vision; Project Fusion
What: Project Fusion is Centennial College School of Communications, Media and Design’s collaborator initiative that allows students of all programs to “fuse” together and collaborate on projects that affect social change at the local level.
This year we will be working to contribute to the topic: Mental Health in the Workplace: a student perspective.
Who: Students from all programs offered at this campus and the Pickering Learning Site — from Public Relations and Corporate Communications to Advertising, Children’s Entertainment, Journalism, Gaming, Book and Magazine Publishing, Graphic Arts, and Art and Design Foundation, Music, Dance, Arts Management, etc. etc. — are able to network, collaborate and convene to create real and impactful projects!
Why: We do what we do best – tell stories – in multiple mediums on a local issue of importance. While we’re at it we learn important collaborative and leadership skills, build our network, build our portfolio and get visibility internally and externally for our work. We aim to win an award (or two) and garner some media coverage for our efforts.
The proof is the campaigns!
