OUR VISION

The Virago Collective is focused on raising community voices. Our intention is to spark dialogue that will lead to meaningful action in a move toward strengthening communities.

OUR APPROACH

  • Offer workshops and mentorships to enhance the professional development of artists and help connect them with others in their field.

  • Promote and support local artists at all levels of their career, across disciplines, in order to share audiences and encourage inspiration among creators.

  • Highlight voices in the community, particularly those that are underrepresented on stages, including (but not limited to) the voices of women, Black and Indigenous artists, artists of colour, LGBTQ2+ artists, and people with disabilities.

  • Seek out unique and creative partnerships with local organizations and businesses in order to make the arts more visible, accessible, and engaging.
