Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

Donate during the month of June and help Open Studio win $10,000 in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

This June we’re participating in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge for a chance to win $10,000 and YOU can help us! Every donation you make to Open Studio during the month of June qualifies as an entry for us to win $10,000, it’s really that easy!

What would we do with a possible $10,000?

Every donation, big or small,  goes to support Open Studio’s programming including exhibitions, education, residencies, and professional development and studio access for artists.

This year we’re dreaming BIG and with $10,000 we would like to build a studio store to showcase the endless creations produced by our incredible community of artists. This is a great opportunity to show the public what happens behind the scenes. We want to create a well-curated retail shop, which would act as a window to all the creativity that takes place in our remarkable studio space. During the month of June we will be posting, on social media, profiles about artists who actively use the studio and would benefit from this increased visibility.

Open Studio is more than a print space, it’s also a community. It’s a space where artists at different points in their careers, from the emerging to the established, can work alongside and support one another. Heather Thomson, Don Phillips Scholar 2017-18

We hope that YOU will also join our community and work alongside us as we grow and continue to make visible the wide range of fantastic work that our artists create!

The diverse community of Open Studio is such a welcoming place …I continue to meet so many interesting and passionate print artists here. To think this is all available in downtown Toronto! Ann Unger, long-time Artist Member
