In less than thirteen months from our launch and three issues later, The Artis magazine was nominated as a Finalist in the "Creative Design—Emerging" category at the prestigious MARTY Awardswhich are akin to the Oscars of the Art & Culture World—and almost unprecedented feat for a #startup magazine!

The MARTY Awards is the biggest art & culture event of the year, with their awards spanning accross all generes: literature, music, performance, design, and more. Hosted by the MIssissauga Arts Council, past winners include Billy Talent, Keys to Belfast in Music, Rebecca Zseder and Larissa Fleurette Ho in Literary Arts, just to name a few. See this years winners in the button below!

The gorgeous ballroom hosted 700 guests, and highlights from the incredible awards honouring both emerging and established artists, with performances, special guests, important speeches, and more.

Keeping Art Alive in the 905

Please take a moment to click on our new GoFundMe campaign. The Artis, a coffee-table-style magazine, has achieved great things in the community in just sixteen months, and has made it into the hands of close to 500 people. I believe going print—and not just digital—has been an integral part of our successes.

Learn more about how The Artis has quickly become the 905’s leading art and culture magazine. And join us on our journey to Keep the Arts Alive in the 905 with your support!
