SPACEMAKER II is a hybrid form of a gallery, independent artist research development space, and community gathering hub. At our core, we are conduits for making space.
SPACEMAKER II is situated within the diverse community of Tkaronto. In representing our community, we open the door of our facility to all peoples and representations.
We acknowledge the land we are meeting on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, Anishnabeg, Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat people and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit. As a community and cultural space, we acknowledge the troubled colonial past of the lands on which we gather. We aim to dismantle systems of colonialism, racism and discrimination in Tkaronto.
We acknowledge the historic and present impacts these systems have on communities in Tkaronto. Our goal is to provide a platform for BIPOC, LGBTQQIP2AA, and minority artists, creatives and performers. We wish to prioritize work from these communities, and create space for these voices to be heard, expressed and released. We acknowledge our own backgrounds as settlers. We will continue to look for ways to best serve our community, and we will be constantly growing, learning and listening.
SPACEMAKER II operates from July to October in 2021. Every month we present a new featured artist/group.
Gallery hours are 7-10 pm, every Friday. Openings are at 7 PM, the first Friday of every month. Can't make it on a Friday? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an alternative time.
