Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Artscape is a not-for-profit enterprise engaged in culture-led regeneration. Artscape's work includes anchoring creative communities within affordable spaces and building authentic and dynamic places by connecting creative and cultural resources.
Artscape set down serious roots in the Queen West neighbourhood in 1995 with the purchase of Toronto's first legal artist live/work building at 900 Queen Street. For more than a decade, this location has provided space for 22 artists and their families as well as six artist work studios including the * new * gallery. Three years later, we opened the Parkdale Arts and Cultural Centre at 1313 Queen Street; our first foray into a mixed-use development in a project that combines artist live/work studios with business associations, social service organizations and Gallery 1313.
Launching the Queen West Art Crawl in 2003 was a natural and fitting next step. The Crawl fosters local networks, celebrates and cultivates the unique character and diversity of Queen West; one of the city's most precious cultural resources - a natural habitat for individual artists, non-profit arts organizations, artist run centres and a dynamic range of creative enterprises and enterprising creatives. www.torontoartscape.on.ca
The Queen West Art Crawl is programmed by Susan Serran, Artscape's Director of Community Development
