Donors and Supporters

The Toronto Biennial of Art would not be possible without the generosity of its patrons, corporate partners, and government funders. Only with the support of arts lovers, city-builders, and community leaders can we realize our mission of making art accessible to everyone and elevate Toronto as an international destination for contemporary art. We are deeply grateful to all of those who have contributed to make the Biennial possible.

Messages From Our Donors

“Through the RBC Emerging Artists Project, we support organizations that provide the best opportunity to advance an artist’s career trajectory in genres such as visual arts, music, theatre, performance, literature and film. We could not be more closely aligned with the ambition of Toronto Biennial of Art – to make contemporary art available to everyone – as one of the ways we support emerging artists is by providing opportunities to expose their work to new audiences. We are proud to partner with them to provide the RBC Emerging Canadian Artist Commissioning Program [please hyperlink to appropriate page] – and look forward to seeing the advancement of local artists in the years ahead.”

– Mark Beckles, Vice-President, Social Impact and Innovation, RBC

“In 2019, the Toronto Biennial of Art delighted audiences with art in public spaces that inspired and challenged us all to look at our city in new ways and from different perspectives. As we anticipate the second iteration in March, I continue to support the Biennial as it is a platform for public encounters that are both accessible and meaningful for people across our city.”

– Robin Anthony, Donor and TBA Council Member

Contribute to activating and amplifying Toronto’s vibrant arts ecosystem.
