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.
