History of Being Scene:
The Being Scene exhibition began over 20 years ago on the grounds of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Since, Being Scene has exhibited a juried survey of over 100 artworks by Workman Arts member artists as well as artists with lived experience who have received services from CAMH. Last year, Workman Arts introduced a smaller curated portion as part of the overall exhibit. Working closely with a guest curator, artists gave shape to compelling ideas and narratives, covering a wide range of conceptual and material approaches from diverse experiences. The exhibition has been shown in spaces such as The Gladstone Hotel, Toronto Media Arts Centre (TMAC) and at CAMH.
