We are dedicated to building the capacity of Toronto’s emerging artistic talent through our host charity, The STEPS Initiative.


With support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the RBC Emerging Artist Project and ArtReach Toronto, we are able to:


  • Increase access to work-integrated learning and equitably-paid employment opportunities
  • Foster mentoring relationships between emerging and established professional artists/administrators
  • Provide employment and continuing education referrals
  • Cultivate networking opportunities with public, private and community organizations
  • Facilitate capacity building programming in the areas of: project management skills; budgeting; health and safety; proposal writing; communications; marketing; business planning; entrepreneurship; financial literacy as well as artistic / technical skills
