About Artifier

Artifier is a web directory for the visual arts created with the mission to help make art more accessible for everyone. Our approach is simple: We want to help you navigate the vibrant local art scene, discover your next favourite local artist and explore the exhibitions and art events taking place at the different galleries, museums, artist-run centres and independent project spaces in the city.

Now let me tell you how this started…

After moving to Canada in 2014 and with a career of over 10 years working in the Arts & Entertainment, in January 2018 I gave myself the challenge to visit an art show a week and document it on my blog.

A few weeks into the project I realized I couldn’t find the information I wanted (and needed) in one single place, so I decided to create it.

Artifier launched on June 15th, 2019 with over 30 galleries on board and the support of the local creative community. We couldn’t be here without you. We’ll be adding exciting features in the upcoming months, so stay tuned!

Thank you for stopping by. We hope you enjoy using the site.
