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