We have long worked with community arts groups to exhibit their work and create space for their mandates and ideas to become a part of what we promote here at The Reach. In strengthening our relationship with community arts organizations we hope to make these partnerships more visible to our community through exhibitions in our Community Art Space.

Ramble: Art Outdoors

A series of socially engaged, pop-up art events that took place around Abbotsford during the summer of 2018. The Reach worked with skilled, professional artists and arts educators to develop art projects that created spectacle and engaged our community in diverse and creative ways. Each of the three projects created a temporary, interactive art destination and culminated in a collaborative work of art.
