Gallery 44 has long recognized education programming as vital to empowering youth and emerging artists. Since 1981, G44 has hosted an expanded and collaborative public education program serving diverse communities throughout the GTA. Through exhibitions, workshops, scholarships and mentorships, our education programs endeavour to eliminate existing barriers to the arts, while encouraging greater visual literacy, independence and growth.
Current and past education partners include: TDSB, SKETCH, 7th Generation Image Makers, Native Learning Centre, and Supporting Our Youth (SOY).

OUTREACH Online: Envision is an online exhibition showcasing the works of youth artists aged 13-26 residing within the GTA. In response to the current pandemic, Gallery 44 invited young artists to share what they have been creating, reflecting on, exploring, monitoring, and engaging with to capture the diverse experiences and feelings incited by COVID-19. In addition to providing a snapshot of the pandemic realities, this exhibition encourages participants and viewers to envision a world post-pandemic and all of its utopian and dystopian possibilities.
