We regret that Workman Arts is not a barrier-free location. There are several steps from the street to the front door and interior steps leading to the Main Hall, upstairs, and downstairs. There is ample seating available, and washrooms between Skey Room and the Chapel (main floor) and outside Roseneath (upstairs) are gender neutral. Workman Arts is a fragrance-free space (please don’t wear perfumes or scented products).
Long Winter is an anti-oppressive, harassment-free zone. Our events are all ages, and any conduct that is known, or ought to be known, to cause offence or humiliation, and may include persistent unwanted attention and deliberate infringement of personal space, hate speech, violence, predatory and otherwise oppressive behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. Organizers will be roaming the event throughout the night, and naloxone kits will be on site. Organizers will be wearing glowsticks. If you are uncomfortable at any time, you are welcome to leave a space. We have a low-stimulus room available in the chapel all night, and attendees are welcome in that space at any time. Feel free to contact us, bar staff, or security if you feel something’s off, or message us on Facebook. Entry to the event is up to the discretion of the staff to ensure these conditions are met and a positive vibe is maintained.
ABOUT LONG WINTER:
Long Winter is Toronto’s essential all-ages, pay-what-you-can inter-arts series that takes place throughout our coldest season. Featuring over 200 local artists/collectives and welcoming nearly 5,000 participants from November-March, Long Winter animates multiple rooms on multiple floors, transforming spaces into immersive, collaborative environments. Events are dense and eclectic, showcasing a broad cross-section of the best in Toronto-area DIY and underground scenes. Featured work includes performance art, theatre and dance, large-scale sculptural installations, projections (single and dual screen videos, still images), visual installations (print, painting, photography collage) and interactive presentations including original video games by local programmers. Initially housed at the Great Hall on Queen Street West, Long Winter has programmed teeming shows at venues ranging from the Gladstone Hotel, to the Hearn Generating Station (Luminato), to the Galleria Mall. We are passionate about integrating diverse artistic communities and culture; gathering some of the most exciting, cutting-edge local talent under one roof.
ABOUT WORKMAN ARTS:
Workman Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization that promotes a greater understanding of mental health and addiction issues through creation and presentation. We support artists with lived experience through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations and partnerships with the broader arts community.
