“Timeraiser is back in Edmonton on Saturday, October 15, the third year Timeraiser has come to our city! Last year’s event was a big success, with over 250 Edmontonians in attendance to pledge more than 4000 hours of volunteer service. A total of $10,000 was paid to artists, and 18 of the 20 pieces went for the maximum bid amount of 125 hours.”

To help promote Timeraiser, WestJet is giving away two tickets to one lucky commenter! Click through, read the question, and leave a comment with your response to be entered!


Well, you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice
You’ve made it now

Timeraiser Edmonton

Timeraiser returns to Edmonton for a fourth year on Thursday, October 11, 2012.

The Timeraiser is part volunteer fair, part silent art auction and part night on the town. Throughout the evening, meet with different agencies and match your skills to their needs. Once you have made your matches, you are eligible to bid on artwork. The big twist is rather than bid money, you bid volunteer hours. 

All visual artists are encouraged to submit an application until August 20th.

The Timeraiser pays fair market value up to $1000 (including framing). You set the price of the work. Timeraiser’s volunteer art jury will then select the pieces that will be purchased for the Timeraiser.
There are no submission fees associated with our calls. 

Looking forward to it!

Fashion East is hosting a draw for three lucky winners to win a pair of tickets each to attend Halifax’s first Timeraiser Event!

The Timeraiser is a silent art auction with a twist: instead of bidding money, people bid on art with volunteer hours at local charities and organizations (eg; Ecology Action Center, The Khyber, The Red Cross). All of the pieces featured at the Halifax Timeraiser are produced by local artists. 

To enter the draw simply reblog, share, twitter, comment on or ‘like’ any of Fashion East’s photos on Tumblr,  Instagram or Twitter and then send us an email (fashioneasthalifax@gmail.com) with your contact info!

The draw begins today, Wednesday October 23rd and will close at midnight on Tuesday, October 30th. You can enter as many times as you like! 

Timeraiser is taking place at Pier 21 on November 1st so we’ll be announcing the winner on October 31st. Try your luck and support a great cause!

2010 Annual Toronto Timeraiser - “Timeraiser is the most memorable, engaging and impactful civic engagement event in the country.”


Well this was a pretty cool summer gig. If you’re ever looking for a, and I quote, memorable, way to get involved in volunteering and score some free (beautiful) local art, then this is the way for you. Not to mention you meet some of the coolest artists around town, working in every medium possible.

I don’t know you but I want you all the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me and I can’t react
And games that never amount to more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ve made it now
