“Toronto’s arts and culture scene is one to watch, and its Jewish ecosystem within it is thriving with world-class creativity.”
So said Sam Mogelonsky, and she should know. Not only is she an accomplished visual artist, curator, and designer in her own right, she also is Director of Arts, Culture, and Heritage for the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, and she heads up the Kultura Collective, an exciting UJA Federation of Greater Toronto initiative promoting bridge-building opportunities between cultural players within Canada’s biggest Jewish community.
Set up by UJA Federation of Greater Toronto in 2018, the aims of the collective are twofold: first, to foster the creativity of Toronto’s Jewish arts and culture community; and second, to bring Jewish arts and culture to the wider community.
Collaboration is key to the collective, which, according to Mogelonsky, aims to “transform and enrich” the cultural life of the Canadian city’s 200,000-strong Jewish community.
