We are thrilled to announce that OCAD U will again partner with TIMERAISER to support artists, nonprofits and collectors!  

This is an amazing opportunity open to all emerging artists!  If you are a current student, you can submit to the special OCAD U student category (you will be prompted to indicate if your student status as you move through the general application process).  From the work submitted to the student category, a minimum of one artwork will be purchased by TIMERAISER.  (Last year 4 purchases were made from the Photo program, along with numerous other OCAD U students and alumni!)

TIMERAISER 101:

 

TIMERAISER buys the artwork from the selected artists.

The public “buys” the artwork with volunteer hours.
Nonprofits get volunteers.

Timeraiser is a volunteer matching fair, a silent art auction, and a night out on the town. The big Timeraiser twist is rather than bid money on artwork, participants bid volunteer hours.  Throughout the evening, participants meet with various non-profit organizations in the room to find available skilled volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding can begin. Winning bidders have 12 months to complete their pledge in order to bring the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

 DEADLINE: March 4, 2016
