With over 15 years of combined experience working closely with artists and designers, managing public art projects, and supporting urban development initiatives in the City of Toronto. PATCH brings a set of world-class expertise with a local focus.
In collaboration with our roster of over 120 artists, our multi-dimensional projects are realized by our core staff, each of whom brings with them unique expertise that includes:
With over 10 years of product development experience, across renowned community and cultural institutions, Alexis has won numerous awards for her leadership in city-building initiatives and holds an MA from the Dept of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto.
Passionate about the potential for culture and art to effect and express change, Carolyn brings a background in film and art history, along with an MSc in Urban Planning from the University of Toronto to her work developing community partnerships and projects.
A visual artist who works with a variety of media, Ananna has been instrumental in the production of several community-engaged public art installations across the city. Her passion for photography and documenting the world around her has brought her to study at Ryerson University.
A public artist and urban planner, Anjuli draws on her program development, community engagement, research and capacity building experience to lead successful community projects. She holds an MSc in Urban Planning from Oxford Brookes University.
Focusing on public space and community engagement, Daniel's work revolves around the potential of local communities to shape their city for the better. Also active in the sustainable food movement, he holds a BA in Environmental Studies and an M.A in Urban Planning from York University.
Bringing extensive experience in community engagement and social work, honed both locally and internationally along with a Masters in Social Work from York University, Winnie is an advocate for public art, community organizing and social change.
A self-taught web developer from Toronto, Vadim has a long-standing interest in the potential for community development. He is excited to be part of the PATCH team, where he brings forth strong IT skills, assists with research and helps co-ordinate things on the artist side.
Our annual calls are facilitated using a double review process, which depends on the valuable contributions of our voluntary Artist Advisory Committee, representing cross-sectoral cultural leaders.
