« Mural Routes invites you to join us for Exchange: 19th National Mural Symposium at the Spoke Club, Toronto.
About the Symposium
For over 20 years, Mural Routes has brought the mural art community together for learning, sharing and networking. This year we highlight and celebrate murals as a tool for Exchange and creative gateway for public dialogue. Presenters will share local and international projects and ideas to illustrate how the value of a mural lies not only in the art left behind, but in the process of exchanging skills, perspectives, stories and experiences. We invite you to join us, learn from your peers, and walk away with a new perspective on mural art.

VOAF is Canada’s first and only festival for Outsider Art, which is represented by significant fairs and museums globally. The artists may be self-taught or trained: they are all devoted to their creative practices, and come from a point of view that is outside the mainstream art world trends.
The 3-day free festival takes place at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre from August 9-11, 2019, and includes 150+ exhibiting and performing artists as well as organizational partners, free public workshops, and hundreds of artworks on display and for sale, alongside aerial silk acrobatics, Cantonese opera, intergenerational dance, wild live performances, and a range of musical stylings throughout the weekend. »

« Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture is seeking local visual artists who identify as living with a disability to share a market booth at the Granville Island Community Market this summer. Every Thursday from June – September 2019, Kickstart will be on Granville Island, doing community outreach, and we’d like to have a different artist share the booth with us each week. It is an unbelievable experience and a free opportunity to get your work in front of the public and the opportunity to sell work. This is also a paid opportunity for Artists.
Kickstart is a Vancouver-based non-profit registered charity, founded in 1998, with a mandate to support and promote artists with disabilities. We do this by presenting professional work by artists with disabilities to public audiences, raising public awareness of their contribution to the arts, and paying the artists for their work. »
« Funding was recently confirmed to support an Indigenous arts gathering and festival. This September, Indigenous artists, curators, and cultural organizations from across Northern Ontario will gather in Baawating/Sault Ste. Marie for Dream Big 2019. Featuring two days of performances, art creation, panels, and discussion, Dream Big 2019 seeks to answer the question – what do Indigenous artists need to thrive in the North?
The gathering is being organized by the Northern Indigenous Artist Alliance (NIAA), an emerging, Indigenous-led arts service organization with the mandate to support, promote, and advocate on behalf of Indigenous artists in Northern Ontario. Co-founded by Rihkee Strapp and Cora-Rae Silk, NIAA was created in response to the lack of Indigenous-run arts organizations in the North working in Indigenous communities. NIAA holds the belief that Indigenous artists are the experts on Indigenous art and on the communities and contexts in which they work.
NIAA co-founder and board member, Rihkee Strapp, says, “Cora and I met at the first Dream Big conference in North Bay in 2015, coordinated by Metis artist and arts administrator Clayton Windatt, formerly of the White Water Gallery. The first Dream Big was mind blowing; to see artists like Kent Monkman speak and show his artwork in City Hall, or Lee Maracle talk about influencing the birth of hip hop at the Capital Centre. For Dream Big 2019 our art administration team will be looking into coordinating multiple venues to show off all the region has to offer.”
NIAA recently earned support from the province and was awarded two grants from the Ontario Arts Council to host the gathering and accompanying arts festival. “We’re extremely grateful to the OAC for their support of this project,” says Strapp. “However, Northern Ontario is huge and air travel is a major expense so we’re hoping to raise additional funds to help subsidize travel costs so more artists from across Northern Ontario can take part.”
