Job Title: 'Community': A Call for Ideas & Artwork

Job or Opportunity Description: Call for Submissions – Student Competition: Cross Faculty
University of Alberta Undergraduate Submission
Location: eHUB 9007 HUB Mall

eHUB is a cross faculty co-working space at the University of Alberta. This space is open to student teams looking to develop an idea or a venture. We provide and seek out resources that provide support to student teams on their entrepreneurial journeys. Community plays a large role in an entrepreneur’s development and is an integral part of the eHUB program.

As a part of the eHUB Creative initiative we are looking for a variety of project proposals for activities that aim to strengthen community with a collaborative component. Students from Science, Business, Engineering, Arts are highly encouraged to apply. We may suggest collaborations within other faculties to strengthen the activity. Student awards available (Amounts TBD).

Here is a sample of activities that take place at eHUB:
• cooperative development of consumer products
• brainstorm ideas for non-profit/for-profit services
• translating research into technical/scientific/medical applications
• multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to research creation
• establishment of ethical social enterprises

The final presentation of the project must be put into consideration. We encourage students to reach out to eHUB’s Curatorial Assistant to assist in providing support for the final display.


Community: a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
We challenge you to create an activity or apply a current project to the idea of community. 
Consider: how you see your activity strengthening or building community on campus or off?

By working collaboratively student teams learn to assimilate and value different perspectives as well as their own. These collaborations foster creative collisions and design thinking and prepare students after graduation.
