YYZ Artists’ Outlet is an artist-led organization. We have always been artist-led, and we will always be artist-led.

To us, being artist-led means that our commitment is everything to each other. By supporting the work of our community, we create an environment in which artists are able to produce and show new work—to try new mediums along with new ideas, to push themselves to experiment, and to offer new interpretations of what our art can be.

At YYZ Artists’ Outlet, there are:

• No barriers
• No boundaries
• No exclusivity
• No hierarchies

At YYZ Artists’ Outlet, you’ll find our commitment to:

  • Civic engagement and equity
  • Dissemination of contemporary ideas
  • Artistic process and production
  • Accessibility and audience development
