Express is a free art gallery that visualizes the concept of Safe Space. After the gallery showing, everyone is invited to express themselves and discuss Safe Spaces and related concepts. Our goal is to instigate conversations about art and Safe Spaces in context of well-being.


  • Artists: Ryerson students are invited to submit art pieces for the gallery through our google form (Art can be visual and/or audio, or performance)
  • Participants: Ryerson community members are invited to view the gallery and participate in the discussions.



  • Unfortunately, we will not be hosting Express during winter 2018. If you’d like to see more of this event, please let us know here:!
