Event Details

Join Mayworks Festival and the artists of Art and Tomatoes, Tzazná + Queso for the Festival Opening Party and exhibition reception at our home venue Steelworkers Hall following the May Day Toronto rally and march on International Workers' Day on May 1, 7  10PM!

Art and Tomatoes is a visual exhibition and public installation that highlights and reflects on Justice For Migrant Workers' Harvesting Freedom campaign, organized to mark the 50th year in which migrant farmworkers come to Canada to feed our families yet have no access to citizenship. Exhibiting at three distinct spaces - a contemporary art gallery, an activist design studio and a workers union hall - this fluid intersection of art, design and activism carries a deep intentionality about the artworks and their impact.

Mayworks Festival

MAYWORKS FESTIVAL OF WORKING PEOPLE AND THE ARTS is an annual multidisciplinary arts festival that celebrates the culture of all working peoples. Founded by the Toronto and York Region Labour Council, Mayworks has been uniting art and labour since 1986 by showcasing the cultural production of workers and their artist allies. Mayworks’ goal is to support the compelling and vital work of both workers-as-artists and artists-as-workers. Mayworks’ artistic vision is specifically guided by our equity policy that allows for representation of First Nations people, people of colour, queer and trans people, people with disabilities and young people as audiences and artists.
