Art Crawl

Every year imagineNATIVE collaborates with established and local artist-run galleries in the downtown Toronto area to present national and international exhibitions featuring Indigenous artists who continue to push the boundaries and expectations of what Indigenous storytelling is. The Art Crawl began unofficially in the early 2000s and has been a staple since 2012.

Anchored in celebrating all art forms, the annual Art Crawl event is a guided tour held within the Festival where we bring Indigenous artistic voices to the forefront. To create a space where Indigenous Identity is acknowledged and commemorated through multiple themes of discourse. Our Mission is to amplify Indigenous artists and present their valuable and unique perspectives through their creative works.

We are happy to partner with A Space Gallery, Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Bachir Yerex, Museum of Art at University of Toronto, Onsite Gallery, Trinity Square Video, Vtape and YYZ Artists’ Outlet for the 2023 Art Crawl.

Important: This ticket will also give you access to the Art Crawl Closing Party at the AGO. You do not need to book an additional ticket
