Wed, Feb 25th at 12 noon is the final deadline for Timeraiser! Last year 3 OCAD U students were selected from the applications. This means they were paid for their artwork, they had their images on display at the Powerplant, their CV was expanded and they received some great press! Not to mention that their artwork helped to raise volunteer hours for non-profit organizations!
OCAD U Representative in Timeraiser 2014: Carlie Woodworth, “Self-Portrait” from the series “Heirloom Objects”, Inkjet on Matte. 13”x19”, 2014.

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 3 winners were selected: Ting Fang, Lauren Vaile, and Carlie Woodworth!)
Open Call: Feb 20th, 2015
Student Call: Feb 25th, 2015

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.
