Somewhere There is a non-profit, artist-run organization dedicated to fostering creative music-making in Toronto. Foremost in our activities is managing and programming performances at Somewhere There Studio - a performing arts venue that is currently looking for a new home. When in operation, Somewhere There featured performances nearly every night of the year, including regular artist residencies, concert series, and visual art shows. The studio has become a community hub for improvising musicians in Toronto, and has hosted thousands of concerts since its founding in 2007.
