ON EDGE | Community Conversation
Join the Art Gallery of Mississauga as we put the "edge" in edge city in 2014 with our ON EDGE Conversations and consider how art and culture can create a link to inform how the city can be built, physically and psychologically to stimulate and inspire its residents and visitors.
Inspired by the exponential growth of Peel and the ambitious plans for its future, the AGM is partnering with cultural producers, residents and community builders to imagine how this period of flux can be regarded as the foundation for new social formations, collective identities and a catalyst for growth in arts and culture.

First. New. Next.
The AGM provides platforms for exhibitions, collections and experimentation in contemporary culture with a recent focus on artists and cultural producers from Indigenous, newcomer and youth communities. Through a broad range of educational programs, artist projects and other forms of critical dialogue, the AGM seeks to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, foster community, and provide spaces where alternative modes of thought are supported and activated in tangible ways.
The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) would like to acknowledge and give thanks to the land on which we work.The AGM has the privilege of operating in the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation and traditional homeland of the Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee nations. We are thankful to the many First Nations, Inuit, Métis and global Indigenous peoples who call this region home.
