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.
