The Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC) is a charitable corporation that drives a number of initiatives publicly benefiting artists and residents of Toronto through art, music and multiculturalism, including a two day multidisciplinary arts festival stretching along Queen Street West from Bathurst to Roncesvalles in Trinity Bellwoods Park in September of each year. With attendance at 65-85k the Queen West Art Crawl has developed over the years from an art crawl to becoming an all-inclusive arts and multicultural festival.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 festival will be held on line.
The Queen West Art Crawl would like to acknowledge this sacred land on which we gather and operate is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, The Seneca, the Mississaugas of the New Credit, and any other nations who cared for the land in its history - recorded and unrecorded.
The territory is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to work in the community, on this territory.
