Thanks to the RBC Foundation’s Emerging Artists Project for making it possible for us to launch the AX Emerging Artist Program at our new ceramics centre. And thank you to the Haynes-Connell Foundation, Allison and Clare McCain, Frank McKenna, and Lee Danisch for their ongoing financial support for the AX ceramics centre.

Thank you also to the Sheila Hugh MacKay Foundation for their generous support. Because of the foundation’s Signature Technology Grant, AX has been able to develop digital outreach programming during the pandemic.
