Artist Material Fund (AMF) at Evergreen Brick Works

Artist Material Fund (AMF) at Evergreen Brick Works

Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 from 8:00 am–4:00 pm

Come get some FREE building materials, tools, and art supplies at AMF at Evergreen Brick Works.

Founded in 2014, the AMF is a service that relocates material and diminishes waste produced in the art industry, while providing resources for artistic production. Rooted in cooperation and mutual aid, the program supports and promotes the sharing of under-used goods to realize their full, potential value, builds more efficient studios. It’s a platform that operates outside of the capitalist, consumerist model, and strives to create one viable alternative to the common issue of fiscal precarity and ecological irresponsibility. As an economically and environmentally responsible redistribution centre, the service gives raw workable material another life by collecting materials from cultural institutions across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, making them free and available to artists and individuals in the community.

The rules are simple:

First-come, first-served.
There is no limit to what you can take.
Take only what you need.

It is pick up only.
We do not accept unsolicited drop offs.
We do not deliver.

You don’t need to be an artist to collect material.
We’ve got lots to go around.

A community engagement project by Suzanne Carte, the AMF is supported by the Art Gallery of Burlington (AGB) and Evergreen Public Art Program.
