The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) is excited to announce the 2nd Career Launcher Fund for graduating students. Emerging artists and designers are invited to apply for funds that will support activities relating to their early career success as they transition out of school. Proposed expenses could include anything that would be important to advancing an individual’s career success. Special attention will be given to proposals that take into consideration the numerous privileges and access that end once students leave school, such as facilities, community, and mentorship. in 2019, the Fund awarded 44 applications from individuals and collectives of OCAD University.

"The Career Launcher Fund has been amazing in supporting my career as an emerging artist. The idea of transiting from student to emerging artist upon graduation has been daunting until I was informed that I got financial support from this funding…. I was able to gain exposure and a smooth transition from student to emerging artist. In addition, I found it very helpful to have financial assistance for software to create new work (something I was given as a student and did not consider as an independent artist). The fund was amazing in jump starting my career as an artist, indirectly granted me exposure, and more importantly, lessened the financial strain of submitting my artwork into the art community." - Tommy Truong
