The Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency is a combined curatorial, relational/live art, and sociopolitical praxis. The residency prioritizes decolonial engagement with LGBTQ art and political histories in Canada.

The two sessions in 2018 see the triumphant continuation of the Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency into its fifth year, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council and private donors.

The artists studios will be open from noon until 8pm. You are of course welcome to linger at AGP’s private beach, or visit Hanlan’s Point, and the many other enjoyments the Toronto Islands have to offer.
