ABOUT THE ONTARIO ASSOCIATION OF ART GALLERIES (OAAG)

Our Vision of the Future:
The Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) will be an essential and sustainable art service organization serving Public Art galleries.

OAAG will be recognized as a leader in Canada’s cultural sector, whose voice is respected and trusted by stakeholders. OAAG will be enterprising in its delivery of services that members value. It will enable member connections through a state of the art digital platform. Members will be in ongoing contact with each other, to share resources and to develop the capacity of each individual and organization. OAAG and its partners will provide relevant, groundbreaking professional development courses to members.

Our long term vision is when our members and the entire public art gallery sector are thriving, art galleries will be contributing to the well-being of their communities through innovation and inspirations to move beyond the status quo. The art gallery as a site of learning will be at the centre of civic conversations, fostering curiosity and understanding. Galleries of all sizes occupy beautiful, functional facilities (physical and virtual) that inspire and display new creative forms. Galleries are sustainable because they are supported by members of the community and all levels of government.

Our Mission:
Through advocacy, professional development, and network-building, OAAG advances and empowers Ontario public art galleries.
