Support Mercer Union This Giving Tuesday


Mercer Union is proud to recognize the strong, passionate community of donors who support our work.

Thank you!

Generous investment from our donors is what fuels critically acclaimed, conversation-starting shows, including Onyeka Igwe’s THE REAL STORY IS WHAT’S IN THAT ROOM, Lawrence Abu Hamdan’s 45th Parallel and—most recently—Aimée Zito Lema’s Scryer in the Archive.

It’s what enables us to make a sustainable place for artists at pivotal stages in their practice and sets us apart as a unique institution, fostering vital conversations at the intersection of contemporary art and civic life.

In the past year alone, we accomplished this through initiatives that included:

  • Hosting 5,547 in-person visitors and welcome 21,160 viewers to connect with our work digitally
  • Inviting 235 participants to engage with our public programming
  • Supporting 30 creative practitioners who received over $29.7K in artist fees
  • Commissioning 7 essays and short texts animating our exhibitions online and in our brochures that reached more than 3,600 readers

Our community plays such an important role at Mercer Union—especially during this time, as we mount critically important, boundary-breaking programming that is invigorating contemporary art in Canada and internationally.

Please consider making a gift to help us fuel our ambitious plans for today and tomorrow.
