MEMBER SERVICES

Welcome to TorontoART

Welcome to TorontoART.ca We exist to promote artists, galleries and art service providers in the Toronto area as well as those who identify with Toronto as their major art hub.

We have two primary goals. The first is to provide an easy to use hub for the public to discover Toronto art and services through profile pages and members own websites.. The second is to offer a venue for dialogue and sharing between members in the Toronto art community.

The site is designed to deliver our services to members at a very low cost and to evolve with the evolution of our members needs. Membership fees are used to maintain the site and to promote the site through online and conventional media and promotional tools.

PROFILE - Each member has a public PROFILE PAGE that includes a summary, image gallery, contact information. and link to the members website. Members can easily modify the content of their page after signing up. The purpose of the page is to help potential patrons discover artists, galleries and art service providers and to drive them to members' websites. Patrons discover members profiles through search or by browsing categories (medium, experience, neighbourhood, service type). The Gallery and Service member profiles are also linked to a Toronto map. The Toronto ART home page features a continuous slideshow of our member artists and galleries.

EVENTS - This is the place for members to to post upcoming shows or other art related events. The Events section is viewable to the public and the site offers tools for visitors to search events by location, date or event type.

RESOURCES - We invite our members to submit articles or other online resources to share with the membership. In addition, we have links to various resource groups and will be commissioning articles on topics of interest to our members. This section is members only and is not to non members visiting the site.

FORUM - Through the discussion Forum members have a tool to raise and discuss art related issues with other members.

MESSAGE BOARD - Want to post a Call For Entry, looking for used track lighting, or wanting to start a co-op? The Message Board is a members- only classifieds site where members can connect with other members.
