North York Arts is excited to announce our Grow North Awards!

The Grow North Awards acknowledge the significant contribution that North York based artists make to the vibrancy, arts and culture of the North York community. The Awards recognize emerging, established, and community artists in North York and spotlight their contributions to the community and their respective disciplines. Our goal is to highlight the achievements of these artists and to build our local community’s appreciation for the art that is being created in North York.
