To carry out, to train, to repeat. People are practicing every day at 401 Richmond; putting ideas into action. People practice their art, their trade, their talent, their passion. As well, many studios in 401 are devoted to teaching new skills and presenting new ideas. This year’s Built for Art seeks to honour this important aspect of life at 401 Richmond.
