When? June - July 2022
Where? The GrEEK Campus Downtown and Ryerson University The Creative School
Named after the iconic Toronto neighborhood, The Junction Summer Sessions are a place where creative minds meet. In advance of the September 2022 launch of their branch campus in Cairo’s New Administrative Capital, this collaboration will share the industry-ready curriculum and expertise of Toronto’s Ryerson University with The GrEEK Campus community and beyond in a series of workshops and events.
As the name “The Junction” suggests, this dynamic and ambitious collaboration between The GrEEK Campus and The Creative School aims to bridge Canada with Egypt, Downtown with the New Administrative Capital, theory with practice, and industry with academia.

The partnership will kick off on Tuesday, 21 June, welcoming industry leaders, students, freelancers, academics and entrepreneurs from the Cairo creative ecosystem to an evening at The GrEEK Campus Downtown.
