2019 Art Encounters

Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF)

Deadline: April 30

At Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, we have established a rich tradition of launching successful careers and providing a highly accessible venue for artists and the public to meet face-to-face. For the past 58 years, we have aimed to remove barriers to the arts from the perspective of cost, approachability and by welcoming diverse artists and audiences.

The Art Encounters program provides assistance to offset the costs and relieve the pressure of participating in the Fair, to a select group of artists or makers who are deaf and/or disability identified. The Art Encounters program is an initiative that embodies our core value of accessibility. Through this program, we will be providing an in-depth professional development opportunity in the form of mentorship sessions and group workshops that will equip the selected artists with tools for success during the 2019 Fair.
