Online150 – Do good, get paid for your art.

Online150_BannerSize_Art

Online150 is an online extension of Timeraiser150.  Through Online150 Canadians from coast to coast can trade volunteer hours for an original piece of art or craft.  Volunteer hours can be completed with any nonprofit organization in the community.  Artists are paid for their work, nonprofits find skilled volunteers, Canadians find meaningful volunteer opportunities.

Are you an emerging artist who would like to have your art, prints, and/or artisan crafts (pottery, textiles etc.) to be purchased for Online150?  Fill in the form at www.timeraiser.ca/artist to submit your work.  If your work is selected, Framework Foundation will send you a contract and payment electronically and your art will be made available on the Online150 platform.

Our hope is to support the careers of emerging artists across Canada and encourage you to submit your art at www.timeraiser.ca/artist

How Timeraiser Works

STEP 1: Timeraiser fosters the next generation of art patrons and values Canadian artists. Each year, artists from around the country apply to have their work purchased by Timeraiser.  All the artwork auctioned by Timeraiser is purchased at fair market value, set by the artist.

STEP 2: Connect with local nonprofit organizations looking for talented volunteers. Finding skilled volunteers is a challenge.  Timeraiser partners with nonprofits across a wide range of social sectors to offers them a unique way to meet talented new volunteers and to promote their good work to a wider audience of supporters.

STEP 3: Bid time. Do good. Get art. Everything comes together at a Timeraiser party and on Online150.

Attend a party and kickstart your art collection by bidding volunteer hours on original art by up-and-coming Canadian artists. Winners have one year to finish volunteer hours and claim their piece of art. The best part?  Volunteer with any nonprofit(s) you choose!  Download the Timeraiser app to keep track of all your volunteer hours and send them directly to Framework.

Online150 is an online extension of Timeraiser150.  Through Online150 Canadians from coast to coast can purchase art by volunteering their time with a nonprofit organization in their local community.

STEP 4: Get involved. Even if you don’t end up winning an original piece of art, join in the social good by pledging hours to volunteer in your community. In 2017, Framework aims to collectively raise more than 150,000 volunteer hours for nonprofits across Canada, connecting Canadians to their communities and the causes they care about.
