Innis College Launches Innis One Program, “The Creative City”

Toronto-oriented Seminars Bringing Together the College’s Three Specialties: Cinema Studies, Urban Studies and Writing and Rhetoric. 

Launched in the fall of 2012, Innis One (“The Creative City”) is a unique program designed to encourage first-year students to develop their creative and critical capacities by exploring the dynamism of the urban environment. Led by Charlie Keil (Director, Cinema Studies Institute), Shauna Brail (Director of the Urban Studies experiential learning program) and Sharon English (2007 Giller Prize nominee and writing instructor), students have sought to gain an appreciation of the interplay between film, writing and urban landscapes – all in the context of the city around them.
