FolioForum

FolioForum

Gallery 44's FolioForum, is a free, bi-monthly portfolio review group for members. This program provides members, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to discuss their work in a casual and supportive environment with members and a guest artist, writer, curator or other professional from the Toronto arts community.

The review is run like a group critique: each participant has 20 minutes to share a project and receive feedback from the reviewer and the rest of the group. Before the review you should prepare 5-20 images from single body of work that is nearing completion as well as a few questions to guide discussion.
