Exhibition and Project Grant Opportunity



OCAD U is excited to partner with Kolab Project to create an exclusive call for submissions from members of the OCAD U community. The Next Fourteen Days is a new initiative that will provide grants to realize 14 new projects, created by OCAD U students, recent alumni and also select faculty. These projects will document new work created over a period of 14 days in May 2020. Collectively and individually these works will speak to this time of physical distancing and self-isolation.

The Next Fourteen Days is an experiment in social connection. Using creative practice to bridge social distancing, this initiative has been developed in an effort to offer a reprieve from our collective isolation, to champion creativity and to support cultural production in these challenging times. The fourteen new works selected, along with the documentation of their making, will be featured online as short digital vignettes, with a goal of reaching as many people as possible.

Individual project grants of $1,000 each will be awarded by a jury made up of Kolab Project and OCAD U representatives. Recipients will be selected on the basis of a short project proposal, the strength of their portfolio of existing work and also a declaration of financial need. Proposals could potentially respond to themes such as connectedness, time, physical space or collaboration, but are not limited to these recommendations.

GRANT VALUE: Individual project grants of $1,000 each



All applicants will submit via: bit.ly/kolabxocadu


May 6: Submission deadline
May 15: Recipients are notified
May 18 – 31: Project creation and documentation
May 31 – June 8: Digital vignettes produced
June onward: Public launch of projects


OCAD U’s partnership with Kolab Project, established in 2020, will enhance the community experience, foster faculty innovation and enrich academic programming at OCAD University.

A subsidiary of Auxly Cannabis Group, Kolab Project’s mission is to provide Canadians with a carefully curated selection of exceptional products, while championing high quality, purposeful goods and experiences produced in collaboration with culturally-relevant creators.
