In 2013, ArtReach, in partnership with Province of Ontario and the Betty Averbach Foundation, delivered the Cultural Careers Workshop series. This project consisted of workshops on the Business of Art and mentorship sessions for young artists in Toronto. The workshops supported 175 diverse young artists in gaining the knowledge, skills, networks and resources to further their cultural careers, with topics including Branding and Marketing, Selling Your Art, and How to Design a Pop Up Shop.
On December 14th, 2013, our Cultural Careers project wrapped up with BAZAAR BAZAAR BAZAAR– curated and hosted by Miracle Thieves and Singhnature. This event was a pop-up market with an array of Toronto artists, including participants from the workshop series, selling all kinds of fashionable, hand-crafted one-of-a-kind goods. Talk about coming full circle.
