Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) | Second Floor, Room 208

Project Name: Rat's Nest Skatepark

Description: For Come Up To My Room 2017, the Oasis Skateboard Factory will transport visitors to a post-apocalyptic skateboard park that has been taken over by gangs of skateboarding rats. Where some schools have tigers or eagles as mascots, OSF feels more kinship with rats- social outcasts who are clever and resourceful. We’ve created a space that while grimy and unappealing to some, serves as a sanctuary to every teen "skate rat".

Using a mix of street art and skateboard culture contrasted with art gallery conventions, students will tell a story that conveys years of decay and infestation of an abandoned skate park turned gallery.

Bio: Oasis Skateboard Factory is a Toronto District School Board alternative high school design program, where youth earn high school credits by running a skateboard business / professional design studio.
