ABOUT WAY PAST KENNEDY ROAD
WAY PAST KENNEDY ROAD is a collective of multidisciplinary emerging artists based in Scarborough and other rejected but resilient corners of the GTA. We build spaces for ourselves both online and offline, and use art as a means of resisting the borders, boundaries, and (un)belongings that define each of our lives and our work in distinct ways.
