NAN is where arts and community meet in Toronto.

NAN has over 650 members from all over the city. We have a great interactive website featuring member profiles, event listings, and opportunities for skill development. Membership is free and members receive monthly e-newsletters with links to jobs, blog posts, events, and other opportunities. Neighbourhood Arts Network is administered by the Toronto Arts Foundation as a part of their Creative City: Block by Block initiative.

Toronto Arts Foundation

Toronto Arts Foundation exists to provide the creative opportunity for donors to support the arts in Toronto. TAF believes that a great city demands great art, and by supporting, celebrating, financing and advocating for Toronto’s local artists, we’re improving the quality of life of all Torontonians. Although separate entities, the Toronto Arts Council and Toronto Arts Foundation benefit by being run as sister organizations, ensuring close contact with the arts sector in Toronto and an ongoing awareness of activities and needs throughout the community.
