Building a Thriving Artist Community in Toronto
Artscape was pleased to present the Artscape Award for Best of Student at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair to Steven Restagno, a talented painter and recent graduate of the University of Waterloo. Through this award, Artscape will support Steven as he grows his creative career through a full access membership to Artscape Daniels Launchpad, a one-week artist residency at Artscape Gibraltar Point, and a solo art show at Artscape Youngplace.
Throughout the year, Steven will have access to learning programs, resources and a supportive community through Artscape Daniels Launchpad, a new creative entrepreneurship hub designed to help emerging and established artists, designers and creators from all disciplines grow thriving careers.
Steven will also receive a week-long solo exhibition from February 2-6, 2019 at Artscape Youngplace, a dynamic community cultural hub operated by Artscape in Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood, offering him an opportunity to showcase his work to a broader audience and add another achievement to his artist profile.
Throughout the year, Artscape offers many opportunities for creatives like Steven, including memberships with Artscape Daniels Launchpad, the Toronto Artscape Foundation Launchpad Bursary program and Winter Island Artist Residencies, which offer creatives of all kinds the chance to thrive.
