We are excited to be re-developing our space at 524 Oakwood Ave into a renewed professional arts centre. This hub will provide the community with art exhibition spaces, a 160-seat performance theatre, co-working spaces, digital arts incubation studios, recording & visual arts studios and community workspaces.
We create spaces for Black Art by supporting professional and emerging artists to learn, grow and show their art.
We provide opportunities for Afro-diasporic artists to gain new skills, hone their artistic practices, and push their creative limits.
We provide young people the opportunity to explore a wide range of creative pathways and expand their artistic abilities. We are an approved vendor with TDSB and provide culturally-relevant school workshops.
We produce and present exhibitions both at the Centre and across Toronto. We showcase work from Afro-diasporic artists across a range of disciplines and mediums – showcasing work provokes, challenges, and inspires our community.
What gets measured gets done. Here’s a summary of what we did in 2021:
that built capacity of over 471 Black artists and community members.
with us for in-school afrocentric arts programming
matched with professional artists as mentors
showcasing the work of over 21 Black artists
including public performances and literary events
As a charity, we’re grateful for the support of our donors and supporters which enable the work we do.
