" Project 40 Collective is an Pan-Asian arts group aimed at providing Asian artists with opportunities to show and create work. LooseLeaf is our publication that features Asian Canadian artists and writers. Check us out at our website at www.p40collective.ca for future opportunities! “

Project 40 Collective  is an interdisciplinary Asian Artist community based in Toronto. We offer publishing and exhibiting opportunities for emerging Asian Artists in Canada, workshops to build skills and grow our craft, micro grant funding for incubator projects and social events to help build professional and creative networks. 

Collaborative Art Space & Platform:  We believe that collaborative art builds dynamic relationships between artists across different mediums and from different walks of life. Art done collaboratively reveals a shared form of truth that is integral to community building and sustaining.

Asian Artist Community & Network:  We recognize the unique set of challenges faced by diasporic Asians in the creative fields , and desire a safe communal, mental, and emotional space where we can feel comfortable engaging with, and dialoguing about our shared and individual identities and experiences.

Critical Engagement with Culture & Ideas:  We aim to develop voices and perspectives that are informed, thoughtful and purposeful. Our critical engagement with historical and contemporary culture, ideas and art feeds and shapes our art practices.We believe that our work is not produced in a bubble of neutrality. Instead, it is formed and speaks into specific contexts. We identify and critically engage those contexts, and work in solidarity to build inclusive community.
