Dates of existence


The Women's Cultural Exchange incorporated under the Societies Act in October 1976. Its objectives were to promote an appreciation of women involved in cultural endeavors in the community; to establish a common space for women who wish to share and exchange their skills, arts and resources in a congenial setting; to facilitate self-help through skill-building workshops, meetings and other educational activities; and, to further communication in order to develop a more cohesive women's community. A space was found at 217 East 16th Avenue and opened April 15, 1977. The Exchange hosted film nights, art exhibits, workshops, readings, performances and other like activities. After five months the Exchange shut down due to lack of revenue and an insufficient number of women in the Exchange collective to run the establishment effectively.
