This initiative was created in 2014 as a partnership between Toronto Arts Council and Toronto Public Library. Artists in the Library is an artist residency program intended to create new collaborative opportunities for Toronto artists and increase arts access in underserved communities by animating libraries in Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough. Resident artists will deliver free public arts programming, such as performance creation programs, community-engaged arts programs, visual and media arts installations and exhibitions, workshops, artist-talks, open studio sessions, arts education programs, mentorship opportunities, performances and other public arts activities. Funding for this program is provided by the City of Toronto.
Participating library branches for the 2018 grant deadline include: Albion Branch, Cedarbrae Branch, Downsview Branch, Fairview Branch, Malvern Branch, Maria A. Shchuka Branch, Mimico Centennial Branch, Oakwood Village Library and Arts Centre, Richview Branch, Scarborough Civic Centre Branch and York Woods Branch.
