The Venture Initiative

Posted on Monday, April 1, 2019

As part of the #uOArtsinApril celebration, the Faculty of Arts in partnership with the Faculty of Social Sciences would like to invite the university community to the Venture Initiative Showcase. A social innovation fair that displays the work of students from the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences as part of the new Venture Initiative: a dynamic new option for students who want to find innovative social solutions to real world issues.

During the Venture Initiative Showcase, students will display their projects through poster boards, presentations, demos, online works and physical arts displays. This is a festive celebration and competition amongst the students. Our judges, who are social innovators themselves, will judge students on the creativity of their solutions, the quality of their pitches, and their overall work. There will be food, prizes and a buzz of excitement as we celebrate the students' projects and the new Venture Initiative!

What is the Venture Initiative?

The Venture Initiative at the University of Ottawa is where you can learn and discover how to have a direct, positive social impact on your community or beyond. A combined effort of the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Arts, this unique hands-on learning initiative is for the socially conscious who are not afraid to shake things ups and want to make a real, measurable contribution to a community or social project.
