Community is important as it strengthens and uplifts us, gives us a deeper sense of belonging and help connect us with others. Community allows us to organize to achieve greater and bigger things than we could hope to accomplish on our own. Regenesis supports various community-building efforts.
Community Arts Gallery
Regenesis, in partnership with other art and environmental organizations, is working to establish a community art space focusing on human rights, social justice and environmental-themed visual and performance art. By day, the space will serve as classroom and rehearsal space; by night, it will play host to art receptions and performances. The space will be made available to student clubs, college councils, faculties and departments within the University of Toronto and York University communities, and to environmental, social justice and human rights groups for meetings and events.
In development at: York University (Keele) & University of Toronto (St. George)
