ABOUT NATIVE ARTS SOCIETY
Native Arts Society was inspired by "art days" which began in May 2020 at one of the encampments and on a street corner in Parkdale, Toronto. The expressive arts have been an incredibly important part of our work and many of the Indigenous street folks we support are talented multimedia artists and come from a long line of Indigenous artists including relations to the Group of Seven. Many Indigenous artists wind up being exploited for their beautiful work, which they often sell on street corners to non-Indigenous people happy to pay way below value for original Native art. We, Native Arts Society, will provide people with a safe space to keep art, sell art, and help people come to work on their art in a place rooted in harm reduction and free from judgment.
All pieces were donated by the Artist themselves or by someone who wanted to contribute to our cause by donating art in their possession. All proceeds will go towards opening the only Queer/Trans Indigenous-owned and run art studio, gallery, and storefront in Toronto.
