New Outreach initiatives

Blackwood Gallery
University of Toronto at Mississauga

The Art Gallery of Mississauga and Blackwood Gallery are pleased to announce the appointment of Suzanne Carte-Blanchenot for the position of Arts Outreach Coordinator in the Mississauga Region. This position has been made possible with a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

Having identified a gap in the dissemination of visual arts to the Mississauga community, the Art Gallery of Mississauga and the Blackwood Gallery have worked collaboratively to develop a vision that strives to mend that gap. Through financial assistance from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, a new outreach program will commence the building and delivery of innovative arts initiatives to the community. The Outreach Coordinator will work jointly with the Art Gallery of Mississauga and the Blackwood Gallery to develop and implement a youth and community Outreach Program.

Suzanne Carte-Blanchenot brings with her several years of experience with not-for-profit galleries including as Director on the boards of Mercer Union and Hamilton Artists Inc. and having held staff positions at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, The Power Plant and Open Studio. Most recently, she has been coordinating Professional Development and Public Programs for the Ontario Association of Art Galleries. Suzanne’s expertise will be an asset as we embark on further expanding and engaging our audiences.

Mississauga is Canada’s 6th largest city. Over the next period, Suzanne will begin to liaise with the many community groups represented here. We anticipate generous community support in welcoming Suzanne and this initiative.
