Critical Mass

Critical Mass: A Centre for Contemporary Art is a Port Hope-based not-for-profit arts organization, led by a volunteer group of curators, artists and art supporters dedicated to bringing contemporary art experiences to Port Hope.

Critical Mass supports community engagement and contemporary visual art practices across a range of media and methods. We curate and create installations, events, and workshops in unexpected public places — with our eventual goal being to have a bricks and mortar space to call home, complete with exhibition and community studio space, and an artist-in-residence program.

Our aim is to contribute to the cultural vibrancy of our community, while promoting the vital connections between our small town and the arts communities and institutions in the “GTA-Montreal culture corridor.”
