Description

Myseum of Toronto welcomes you to join us in conversation with Marta Keller-Hernandez, Co-Founder and Director of Programming at Paralia Newcomer Arts Network and Rupal Shah, Strategic Programs Officer of the Toronto Arts Council as we highlight avenues for support, and examine the challenges that newcomer artists, art administrators and cultural workers encounter when navigating an unfamiliar arts and cultural sector.

Representatives from Airsa Art & Thought Association, JAYU, LACAP, North York Arts, Sick Muse Art Projects, Toronto Arts Foundation and the Toronto Ward Museum will also be joining us as community connectors while we spend the morning networking, sharing resources, and discussing the importance of making space for newcomers in the city’s arts and cultural sector.
