Artery, Toronto

Toronto is well known for its thriving music scene but that doesn’t stop it from facing the same issue as many other cities: the closing of live venues. A start-up called Artery is trying to change all that by turning living rooms, backyards, rooftops, bathroom walls and any other nooks and crannies of the city it can find into pop-up performance spaces for musicians and artists to showcase their work. Monocle bureau chief Tomos Lewis meets one of Artery’s co-founders, Salimah Ebrahim, to find out how it’s pumping life back into the city’s arts scene.
