Faculty Highlights

Woven Stories

The Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies was pleased to invite the Sheridan community to attend an event to celebrate the completion of the “Woven Stories” project. Woven Stories is the experiential design window treatment that has added to the aesthetic, while reducing the energy footprint, of the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Centre for Healthy Communities (CHC- H wing) building at the Davis Campus in Brampton. Individuals from many different areas of Sheridan were brought together to collaboratively design and create Woven Stories. The celebration event took place on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.

Woven Stories was featured on the Curiosities blog - the full story is located here:
