MUSE Arts is an artist-run, community arts organization focused on creating spaces and engaging communities meaningfully and actively in hands-on, high-quality arts education integrated to issues of social justice. Our organization supports emerging artists from equity-seeking groups to showcase their work and access opportunities for professional development.
We aim to:
- Foster and build a connection among artists and other community partners to promote art work and art education that engages communities in issues of Social Justice and Community Development.
- Increase the visibility of newcomer and refugee artists in the artistic scene in Canada.
- Promote international cooperation among artists and engage in cultural and artistic knowledge and skill exchanges. Engage artists in local, national, and international opportunities that promote professional development in their individual practices and in community-engaged arts.
MUSE Arts (a.k.a. Sick Muse Art Projects) is run by refugee, immigrant, and newcomer artists. Through the ARTS, we build and inspire the communities we envision.
Our projects are made possible thanks to the financial support of
