MAKE ROOM | THE SPACE PROJECT : unfolding in the frame

Doors are often the access point

between people and spaces.

Yet, the walls that divide them still present barriers, as we can’t see what’s on the other side. That’s why windows exist. The frame displaying art that Trevor Twells champions.

Trevor is the founder of Toronto-based non-profit, Make Room. He does that and more, with its initiative called The Space Project, enabling marginalized and emerging artists to reach audiences they don’t have the resources to access. It’s simple; you submit your work, it’s processed for approval, and displayed in partner gallery windows. One cool element is the time; you only experience the art between 9 pm and 4 am, and it’s all done through a projector.

Maybe your mind is a bit more open; to the concept or the contents of the work itself, after coming off a long day at work, or through letting go to experience whatever you experience.

Trevor is holding space for artists, helping them to grow, removing labels and breaking barriers to creativity. In this episode, we get into the Fold to discuss the project’s evolution, Trevor’s diverse career background, Toronto’s indie art community and how we can foster collaboration with a wider lens.

in collaboration with HXOUSE and Launchpad:

When creators move to digital, our voices become confined to a bubble. People now have to Follow, Like and Subscribe for our art to be heard. The physical space we take up is shrinking to fit our screens. Open Canvas is a subversion of this, bringing art that lives in the digital world to the physical world - Making room and taking up space to be seen.
