Image Development is a community art program, which is facilitated by Regent Park Community Health Centre. Comprised of a diverse group of women experiencing long-term poverty, participants came together as artists to create.

Since January, these women have undertaken to explore and expand their own art practices beyond what the current drop-in Art Afternoon Program allowed. They pursued independent themes and, with the assistance of the artist instructors, developed the techniques and specialized skills to realize several works each.

The results will be showcased at the Image Development Art Exhibit, with all proceeds from the sales of artwork going towards supporting the artists.

The Image Development Art Exhibit has been generously supported by the Toronto Arts Council and Central Toronto–LHIN.
