The Artists Garden Cooperative (AGC) and Artify exist to connect artists with the community in various ways. The AGC donates studio space and a performance platform to artists and performers during a summer conferencing program to promote art education and outdoor music concerts. Artify provides affordable curatorial and marketing services to artists by organizing Pop Up exhibitions in alternative gallery spaces around the City of Toronto.
Thoughts about art and community:
Emerging and veteran artists and performers need opportunities to reach a wide range of audiences. There is an abundance of talent across many disciplines in the arts in Toronto. Artists tend to concentrate on honing their craft and refining how they express their feelings, experiences and beliefs. Local artists deserve many options for sharing their vision and talents with the community.
