What’s Happening

Union Station – Black Dreams and Aspirations Collection 1

This first instalment of a two-part series, curated by MakeRoom, features the works of six artists. They explore themes of community, self-possession, connection to the past, creativity, and the power of imagination. Viewable at the Union Station West Wing in Toronto.

We work with clients to create, curate, facilitate, and manage meaningful art displays and experiences. Our work is at the intersection of art and community. We source contemporary art locally, directly from artists.

Transparent and Traceable. Every aspect of our process, from the open call process to how much the artist was paid is public. This is how we combat nepotism and a gatekeeping in the arts.
