Who is JAM?
Hello! We are Jill Goranson, Alexa MacDougall and Michael Derworiz, or as we like to call ourselves: JAM. We are art lovers and art makers who started Art Pop-Up with the hope of bringing together a community of artists that could practice the craft of creating. The three of us previously developed one night only experiences that featured new-works created by Tkarón:to/Toronto based artists. Now, we are transferring that practice online to include internationally based artists and audiences. Art Pop-Up reflects on creativity through multiple mediums including: theatre, dance, visual arts, music, poetry and design all inspired from a single, unifying colour prompt.Visit our Instagram!
