No More Dreams

Established in Fall 2017, the partnership between HXOUSE and George Brown College (GBC) is rooted in a commitment to foster innovation and enhance opportunities for young creatives in Toronto. GBC and HXOUSE will provide a space for creative individuals of all backgrounds and paths through a philosophy that allows creatives to learn by doing. Our focus is on the young creative entrepreneur that is leading his or her discipline in new directions, by proposing fresh ideas and an interesting perspective. The partnership will provide innovative global opportunities for young creatives. The initiative provides a novel approach to mentorship and skill development, which will help transition Toronto's current creative ecosystem into one that supports creatives to achieve success within their own city. This approach reflects GBC's own path to leadership, particularly in shaping the future of Toronto as 'A Leading Global City'.

This year the focus of our "No More Dreams" initiative and curriculum will be geared towards design. We will be announcing the next levels of the curriculum in 2019.
