Location

XPACE Cultural Centre 58 Ossington, Toronto, Ontario

Building on the success of two years of packed-to-the-rafters salon-style shows, the third annual art exhibition highlights the creative work done by students who do not fit into the mainstream school experience and have chosen an alternative. This show, the result of an ongoing partnership between XPACE and a family of alternative highschools, provides a supportive educational experience for youth to learn and contribute to the local cultural community and serves as a launching pad for young artists to share their unique creative voices with the broader public. Alternative Schools in the Toronto District School Board have demonstrated a 40 year commitment to the arts and have had a large number of students go on to post-secondary art institutions and arts-related careers in Toronto and beyond.
