About Us

Underscore Projects is a cultural platform supported by a physical space that includes multi-functional studios, artist residency, and gallery.

Underscore Projects’ mission is to foster collaboration among artists in their creative process and connect them to a support system from concept to showcasing and final sale. Located in the heart of Little Portugal Toronto, we serve the community as a centre for public dialogue, encouraging open discussions and creating an alternative to traditional art spaces, to enhance our community’s experiences and supporting emerging artists and creatives.

Built originally in 1910, the building recently underwent major renovations while preserving its identity and history. Every aspect of the space was thought out to create a welcoming environment for artists and encourage creativity.

Underscore Projects acknowledges that we are located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
