PROJECTS

No.9 is an arts organization that uses art and design to bring awareness to environmental concerns. We deliver programs in schools, and exhibitions in the public domain designed to encourage creative thinking to resolve environmental issues and to promote a sustainable lifestyle.

public art

No.9 will produce provocative projects in Toronto ev­ery year with three main objectives: to pro­vide the best Cana­dian and International artists with a high­ly vis­ible platform for their ideas; to make their work ac­cessible to the widest pos­sible au­di­ence, by in­stalling it in public space and by in­volving differ­ent communities each time; and to pro­vide extensive ed­ucation around each project, so that our au­di­ences learn about the artists, their work, the envi­ron­mental issues they explore and the val­ue of cre­ative think­ing in dealing with re­al prob­lems.

We are cre­ating some­thing completely new for Toronto, a major venue for Con­temporary Art with the whole city as our gallery. By working with artists to devel­op their vi­sion, each location and the artist's response to it will be spe­cif­ic and unique.

For each new in­stallation, the jour­ney through the city to reach the site is crucial, an opportunity to see fa­mil­iar places in a new light or to discover places that are neglected or off-lim­its. Public space is reclaimed for the viewer as a site for enjoy­ment, community interaction, and ed­ucation.

To be added to our mailing list for updates on this and all of our projects, please send an email to info@no9.ca.

education

With a desire to reach and in­spire younger generations, innovative ed­ucational out­reach projects have become a strong focus of No.9 programming. Through a hands-on approach to ed­ucation us­ing art and design, No.9 ed­ucation programs have opened the eyes of younger generations to press­ing envi­ron­mental issues, and sustainable practices. Strong, collab­orative partner­ships with Ontar­io-based art, envi­ron­mental, and ed­ucation orga­ni­zations have al­lowed No.9 to produce results well be­yond its size. Our programs bring forward-think­ing programming and exhi­bi­tions, which are inextrica­bly linked to the changes hap­pening in the world, di­rectly into the class­room.

Since 2006, over 14,000 Ontar­io el­e­mentary school students have expe­ri­enced No.9 ed­ucation workshops in their class­rooms. In 2010, 11,000 inner-city GTA students en­gaged with the Iain Baxter& EcoArtVan over a two-month pe­riod. Since 2012, No.9’s Imag­ining My Sustainable City, a three-year partner­ship with the Toronto Dis­trict School Board, has reached 50 el­e­mentary schools in each of Toronto’s 44 Wards. Through this in­ter­disciplinary and hands-on approach to learning, students were able to acquire new skills, gained the confidence to present their work, and were introduced to re­al life applications of the lessons by meeting their school Trustees and working with vol­unteers from the Ontar­io As­sociation of Ar­chi­tects.

Through our ed­ucation programs, No.9 has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund, Cana­dian Artist Iain Baxter&, The Toronto Dis­trict School Board, Toronto Public Libraries, and Ev­ergreen. We are proud to an­nounce that in 2015 our ed­ucational programming will expand its reach into class­rooms in Hamilton in partner­ship with the Hamilton-Wentworth Dis­trict School Board.
