The Artists’ Network is a membership-based organization dedicated to supporting visual artists in their business practice. The Artists’ Network offers educational seminars, workshops, tools, exhibition opportunities and more, with the goal of the development of self-sustaining artists.
East End Arts will hold an interactive discussion with members of The Artists’ Network about elevating the visibility of art in the east end of Toronto:
- Is it important and why?
- Is there an east end cultural identity (and should there be)?
- What is East End Arts doing to advance this goal and what else can/should be done?
