Experience the exhibit StreetARToronto You’ve Changed at the Market Gallery and learn about how local street artists have taken Toronto street art to a level of international renown.


StreetARToronto (StART) is a suite of innovative programs designed specifically for streets and public spaces. Initiated in 2012 as an integral part of the City’s Graffiti Management Plan, StART has been successful in reducing graffiti vandalism and replacing it with vibrant, colourful, community-engaged street art.

StART programs encourage active transportation (walking and cycling), make our streets more beautiful and safe, showcase local artists, mentor emerging talent, reduce overall infrastructure maintenance costs and more. You can download our 2020 Information Session presentation.
