Emerging Leaders

Our Emerging Leaders are a dynamic group of young professionals, arts lovers, and arts philanthropists. Join our group today!

Toronto Arts Foundation gives Emerging Leaders an opportunity to deepen their understanding and knowledge of the arts and cultural sector in the city.

Our Emerging Leaders are committed to supporting our arts community through the following ways:

  1. Building new audiences. Each year, our committee curates up to 8 unique events and experiences for our Leaders. Our events aim to shine a spotlight on all artistic disciplines and showcase what the City’s diverse cultural landscape has to offer. All events include time to connect with friends, meet new people, network and mingle with artists and other arts lovers.
  2. Foster future Creative Champions. By connecting our Leaders to additional opportunities provided through our programs, such as our Creative Champions Network, we are providing vital skills for the future generation of arts board members and cultural leaders.
  3. Deepen a young generation’s commitment to the arts. By nurturing relationships built between Leaders, artists, arts organizations, and our Foundation, we emphasize the importance of giving back through charitable giving to and volunteering in the arts.

Join Emerging Leaders today and become a part of the arts. Curate your own experience! Becoming a member of Emerging Leaders is free! Events access is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Tickets to each unique event or experience are limited.

Event ticket price varies, averaging $30 per event.
