Catalyst Reopening

Health and Safety Protocols


Please find attached google docThe Catalyst's Health and Safety Protocols, external link. There is a one page Quick Guide on the first page for your convenience, and more detailed information follows. We strongly encourage you to read through the document as it contains important information about shared offices, events and the outbreak protocol.

In the interest of a safe return to campus, we will be adopting a gradual return to The Creative School Catalyst. The Catalyst‘s physical space will partially reopen to residents (and their RA's). In the interest of safety, only one staff person will be onsite per day between Tuesday to Thursday from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. beginning the week of September 27th.  However, The Catalyst staff will continue to be available online, Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Where Research Meets Creativity, Creation and Communication

We are the first large-scale space dedicated to scholarly, research, and creative (SRC) activities within The Creative School. Located on the 2nd floor of the Rogers Communication Centre, The Catalyst houses several SRC projects, labs, and centres under one roof. We bring brilliant minds together from across all schools in The Creative School to explore, innovate, and impact the world we live in. The Catalyst serves to support potential, emerging, and ongoing projects coming from The Creative School researchers, creatives and their collaborators.

Meet Our Residents

We are working with The Creative School and community members to best determine how to support our graduate students, faculty and researchers. Our goal is to build an online community that is connected and supportive, just as The Catalyst has always been.
