Brooke Manning is an artist who studied Art History at Queens University before transferring to OCAD in 2008 to complete her BFA. Inspired by a deep love of community, transparency, ethical consumerism, and empathy, she created the artist-focused space Likely General in 2013 with its first priority being that of providing a home for the work and expressions of women, marginalized, queer, and non-binary folks. Likely General’s storefront regularly houses the work of over 300 artists and offers a new exhibition in its community gallery space monthly. In her personal life, Brooke is an active published poet, writes music under the moniker Loom, and is studying to be a Death Doula.
