Another Artfare Essentials

Artfare Essentials was held for the 12th time in Toronto from Dec. 12th to 18th, 23 people from Toronto, Northern Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick, plus 12 artists and staff of Jumblies and Offshoots, came together for 6 days to learn about and consider the principles and practices of “Community Arts”. The activities were based at The Ground Floor, with field trips (to Arts4All, MABELLEarts, Making Room and the Community Arts Guild) and a whole day of creative play at Historic Fort York. Thanks to all those who took part and helped make it happen – and to those who helped to fund it (including the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council and Platform A. Here are some photos from our last day, taken by Teddy Syrette and Karis Jones Pard.
