Together Even When We're Apart

The Story

We are all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Economically, socially and even spiritually.

The shutdown has turned vibrant and diverse communities and business districts into ghost towns, with many of our favourite restaurants, bars, cafes and local shops having to shutter their windows and doors.
Together we can change that. We can bring back life to our communities. In partnership with Partial Gallery, and a generous sponsorship from Grassroots Advertising Inc., Labour of Love launched an art initiative called Together Even When We’re Apart in the spring of 2020.
This initiative helps save communities and business districts by sparking joy and giving people another reason to visit. We believe this can support local artists, and be a way to use art to bring hope and comfort to all of us. 
Our first series features 11 Toronto artists and has the theme of nature and resilience. Their artwork was featured in 4’ x 6’ posters throughout the downtown core, from the East End to the West End, on the windows of empty shops and boarded up buildings in the spring of 2020.
These art posters continue to be available for sale as smaller prints, exclusively at Labour of Love. All proceeds, less printing costs, go directly back to the artist.
