OAC Exhibition Assistance
Are you seeking funding for the presentation of your work? InterAccess is proud to be a recommender for the Ontario Arts Council's Exhibition Assistance program, which provides grants to Ontario-based artists and artist collectives working in visual arts, craft and media art practices in the presentation of their artwork in a confirmed public exhibition.
This is a third-party recommender program. Using NOVA, OAC’s online grant application system, artists apply to the galleries and organizations designated as recommenders for the program. Recommenders assess applications and submit grant recommendations to OAC.
InterAccess assesses OAC Exhibition Assistance applications based on their eligibility for the grant program, artistic merit, and contributions to the field of new media arts. Funding recommendations will be made by InterAccess's Programming Committee, comprised of InterAccess staff, Board, and community members.
Application deadlines: September 5, 2022 and January 9, 2023

InterAccess is seeking workshop proposals from members of the art and technology communities. In recent years, our workshops have focused on building skills in contemporary new media art techniques including electronics, robotics, microcontrollers, and creative coding. For a larger list of recent programming, see InterAccess’s past events here. InterAccess aims to offer educational programming that is timely, relevant, comprehensive, and delivered by excellent instructors.
About Our Workshop Formats:
Most of our workshops assume that students have minimal prior knowledge of the tool or subject being taught. Where workshops require prerequisite knowledge, we generally offer that knowledge in a separate workshop or workshop series offered prior to the advanced level workshop.
Workshop proposals may be one of the following formats:
- Online Workshops (on Zoom)
- Weekday evening workshops are 2 to 3 hours long
- Longer, multi-week courses may be proposed as well
InterAccess’s base instructor pay is $50/hr, with a 3-hour minimum workshop format.
Workshop pricing varies according to number of hours of instruction and materials required. For instructors, InterAccess provides support in the course development process and in-class.
Ideal Workshop Proposals:
- Focus on a contemporary skill set in new media or electronic art
- Allow for hands-on instruction
- Make use of the facilities, tools, and equipment already available at InterAccess
- Require minimal equipment purchase by individual students
- Compliment programming already offered by InterAccess
- Delivered by a qualified instructor with relevant experience in the subject matter being taught
Workshops in any topic will be considered. However InterAccess is currently seeking instructors for online or in-person workshops that explore the following areas of media arts practice:
- Code-based/generative platforms
- Video game/machinima
- Bio art
- Machine learning
- Experimental sound
- Interactive storytelling
- 3D mapping
Interested Volunteers for short-term or special projects may send an introductory email to our Programming Coordinator.
