Xpace Cultural Centre has an upcoming Submissions deadline on November 8th, 2014. We will be programming three open calls: the Images Festival, the Politics of Design, and the External Spaces (located on OCADU campus).

We will be holding a Proposal Workshop for help with the planning and writing of your project proposal. You can view all three submission call on our website at under the Submissions tab.

Bring in your project proposals (completed or partial) and we can give you feedback!

Toronto Curator Shauna Jean Doherty will be joining the Xpace staff to talk about her experiences in applying to calls for submissions, putting out calls for submissions, and what she looks for in proposals, specifically in relation to the Images festival call that she will be curating.

The workshop is free and open to anyone, but please RSVP to to reserve your spot.
