The AGO and Workman Arts are partnering to empower artists to share their personal artwork and artistic practice. By creating a series of artistic videos which will premiere on the AGO’s Facebook page, they are taking up themes of mental health awareness and advocacy in art galleries and museums.

Workman Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization promoting a greater understanding of mental health and addiction issues through creation and presentation. Workman Arts supports artists with lived experience through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations and partnerships with the broader arts community.

Amanda Lederle showcases their main work of black- and- white Emotional Maps and colourful gender non-conforming paintings of footwear. They share a few ideas on how the AGO can further engage with communities, create accessibility and feature more BIPOC artists in the community and arts and culture sector.
