Artsforum is an award-winning, not-for-profit magazine of arts and ideas based in Canada, established in Fall 2000.  Though most of our readers are situated in the Greater Toronto Area, we have subscribers across Canada, in the United States, and even a few in Europe!  We are dedicated to excellence – and we aim to celebrate the best in writing, criticism, art, and photography.  You’ll find critiques of film, books, DVDs, music, concerts, live theater, and dance in our pages, as well as displays of art and photography.  Our contributors run the gamut from talented newcomers whom we are

In 2014, Artsforum online was nominated for the Art of Transition Creative Award.
