Art Toronto is Canada’s Art Fair
Since 2000, we have been dedicated to supporting art in Canada, connecting audiences to local, national and international galleries, and promoting diverse creative practices.
The Art Toronto head office and event space are located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples.
As a Canadian arts organization, we are dedicated to supporting the vibrancy, diversity and wellbeing of artists, makers, curators, gallerists and collectors from across the country including First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, alongside immigrant communities who have gathered here from around the world. We are committed to sharing their work and stories with fellow Canadians and international audiences. We strive to shed racial bias as an organization and are focused on supporting creative practices that better reflect the diversity of Canada.
Caring for our community and the environment are both important to us. Recognizing the need to work together to combat climate change, we collaborate with our partners, suppliers and exhibitors to reduce, reuse and recycle. Some of our initiatives include:
Powering the event with renewable energy
Reducing waste through measures such as removing aisle carpet, qnVIP cards and reducing vinyl signage by 50% used onsite with a goal to eliminate entirely by 2023
Reusing booth hard walls, plinths and platforms from year to year, and recycling materials such as rugs and signage
Ensuring that composting and recycling bins are available onsite at the fair
