In 2009, Art for AIDS International opened the doors of its first public gallery and Head Office, in the lower level of a Dundas Street building in London, Ontario’s downtown core. It was a space that for four years saw many exciting events and exhibits, hosted thousands of members from the local and international community, and held inventory for international exhibits and AIDS awareness campaigns hosted at the Apartheid Museum, UN Agencies like the World Food Programme and IFAD, and countless galleries, universities, colleges, and secondary schools. Most importantly, with our growing team of volunteers, it was the space where we planned workshops that reached over 10,000 young people in 13 countries with important information about health and community involvement.
Since 2009, we’ve worked to grow our reach, and our team of volunteers has grown with it. While our gallery and office at 242 Dundas Street was for many people home, we decided in late 2012 that it was one we had outgrown; and so the search began. Thankfully, with tremendous support from our board and members of the local community, the search was a short one and by December 2012, we had found and moved into our beautiful, spacious new location, just around the corner, in One London Place.
Today, we’re happy to share some of the first photos from our new space with you. We would also like to thank all of our volunteers, our board, and the fantastic staff at One London Place and Sifton for their hard work and support in helping us prepare the space, set it up, and get settled.
