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 scheduled to take place around Abbotsford in summer 2018. The Reach is working with skilled, professional artists to develop art projects that will create a spectacle and engage our community in diverse and creative ways. Each of the three projects we are planning will create a temporary, interactive art destination and will culminate in a finished work of art that will be exhibited at The Reach.
