On December 14th, 2013, ArtReach hosted BAZAAR BAZAAR BAZAAR- curated and hosted by Miracle Thieves and Singhnature! This event was a pop-up market, located at Toronto's The Great Hall, with an array of Toronto artists bringing all kinds of fashionable, hand-crafted one-of-a-kind goods.
This event was part of ArtReach's Cultural Careers project, wherein ArtReach delivered six workshops and six mentorship sessions for young artists in Toronto. These workshops were designed to support diverse young artists in gaining the knowledge, skills, networks and resources to further their cultural careers. Participants then had the option to be a part of our holiday marketplace, and were able to receive one-on-one mentorship from workshop facilitator and curator of the Bazaar, Natasha Singh.
