Welcome to STEPS Public Art

We activate spaces for people.

Fostering vibrant communities.

STEPS fosters dynamic and inclusive communities through public art and creative placemaking. We transform urban spaces into vibrant places through cultural planning, community arts and artist capacity building programs.

We are a Canada Revenue Agency–registered charity.


Build community through creativity.

We can develop a cultural plan, commission a new public artwork, install a hoarding exhibit or animate a local park. Our team can connect you with artists, facilitate calls-for-artists, design inclusive cultural projects and generate solutions to public space challenges.

STEPS is fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Let’s breathe new energy into our communities together through: 

Our city, our collective canvas.
