Unveiling Heroes of the Block

Community Consultation: April 26th at 6:30PM

In partnership with ArtworxTO and CABR, this project seeks to uncover the buried and lesser-known stories of prominent Black Canadian figures that contributed to the foundational fabric of the Toronto we know and experience today. The project will result in several public art installations across the Greater Toronto Area including an installation at the Rexdale Community Hub. We will be hosting an online community consultation, to share the names of the top 3 finalists and invite the public to vote.

To get involved, fill out the form below to nominate a Black community leader/hero, either past or present, that you would like to see featured in this project. You can find the form here: 


Grant Writing for BIPOC Artists

April 6 at 6PM

Are you a BIPOC artist with great ideas in mind, but in need of a little assistance realizing those ideas? Or are you an artist collective needing a little capital to get the ball rolling on projects to expand your practice and contribute to your community? Maybe you’re an individual looking to up-skill and grow your craft?

Join us on April 6th from 6PM – 8PM EST for a deep dive into the grant writing process with the multifaceted and talented artist, Paulina O’Kieffe, brought to you in collaboration with BSAM Canada, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and Ryerson University’s Design Fabrication Zone (DFZ).
