At MABELLEarts, we believe that art has the power to transform people and neighbourhoods. We’ve spent the past 11 years proving it. Our organisation has been a leader in the use of arts and culture to animate parks, with an inclusive approach that seeks to connect people across real and perceived differences.

For any questions or required expertise related to community arts, artful hosting and facilitation, placemaking, parks, and outdoor and public spaces in Etobicoke, Toronto, Canada and beyond, please contact:
