XPACE Cultural Centre

Xpace Cultural Centre is an artist- and designer-run centre supported by the OCAD Student Union. We are dedicated to providing student and emerging artists and designers with the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional setting, as well as further develop professional and creative skill sets and practices. OCAD U students form our membership and we program with your interests in mind!

How to get involved:

Exhibitions:
We provide exhibition opportunities to our membership as well as emerging practitioners from other schools to create critical dialogue across the arts community. Our exhibitions are programmed from a yearly open call for submissions, as well as thematic calls in the fall.  Open call deadlines are typically in June. Visit our website for more information!

Workshops:
We offer creative and professional development workshops year-round, free-of-charge. Workshop topics change from year-to-year, but have included everything from building a website and how to do your taxes, to stop-motion animation, needle-felting, digital game design and everything in between. Information on upcoming workshops is posted on our website and social media accounts.

Library: 
We have on-site zine and mix-tape libraries, as well as a curated selection of art and theory texts available to visitors.

Write for us: 
We commission short essays from emerging writers for each exhibition. Want to write for us? Get in touch at the e-mail below with some short writing samples.

Design for us: 
We commission posters for all of our events and workshops from emerging designers and artists. Want to design a poster? Get in touch at the e-mail below with some samples of your work.
