HISTORY

Neighbourhood Arts Network is a Toronto-wide network of over 1700 members, including artists, arts organizations, cultural workers and community agencies working throughout the City of Toronto: from North York to the downtown core, from Etobicoke to Scarborough. We catalyze new discussions and relationships. We collect research and share information. We help artists and community organizations do what they do best: enrich Toronto and transform it into a more vibrant, beautiful, liveable city.

We launched the Neighbourhood Arts Network in 2011 after publishing a study into the challenges experienced by artists attempting to engage their local communities. The Neighbourhood Arts Network is a unique and invaluable network that connects artists, arts organizations, arts workers, and community agencies throughout the City of Toronto, with a strong focus on community-engaged arts.
