YYZizzles! Help YYZ keep its COOL


If you have ever attended an opening or event at YYZ Artists Outlet, you know it can be a real scorcher in here. Our space is ALWAYS hot, making it uncomfortable for staff, artists and visitors alike. Additionally, these conditions are detrimental to the artwork on display, to our collection of published books, and to the 38 years of archival material that we are trying to preserve.

The time has come for us to address this critical issue with an upgrade of our system to meet industry standards for the cultural sector. As we embark on our first significant fundraiser in over 5 years, we need your help! Our immediate goal is to raise $15K, with the aim to secure matching funds from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund this fall.  Please help us to maintain a high quality artist-run space in Toronto by donating to our HVAC system campaign!



Here are some COOL gifts to show our sincere thanks!
