Toronto Free Gallery

Executive Director: Heather Haynes

Toronto Free Gallery (TFG) is a not-for-profit art space dedicated to providing a forum for social justice, cultural, environmental and sustainability issues expressed through all media.  TFG is intended to be a creative laboratory.  We aim to provide artists with a space to experiment, explore new ideas, question norms and challenge both themselves and their audiences.

TFG occupies a distinct role within the city’s cultural ecology.  We are the only gallery in Toronto whose programmes consistently highlight and offer creative responses to urgent social issues such as sustainability within urban and suburban areas, gentrification, environmental issues, human rights and equality, and how the role of arts and culture can play in fostering community engagement and change. We are also unique in Toronto by consistently fostering collaboration between creative communities through exhibitions and events that include visual artists, architects, activists, film-makers, performance artists, writers, architects, urban planners/geographers, ecologists, front-line workers and academics, to name a few.
