ArtsJunktion mb Inc. is a community-based charitable organization committed to redistributing reusable materials available take-what-you-need, pay-what-you-can.

Our mandate is to support the creative community by providing accessible materials and a creative space; provide art workshops with an emphasis on repurposed materials; and to support artists through promotion of their art and through fairly paid employment opportunities.  We also work to reduce landfill waste by receiving materials from businesses, organizations and individuals for distribution to the public, and to increase environmental awareness through community engagement and programming.  We want to provide a safe and inclusive space for all community members, and to support our neighbourhood, city, and province through vibrant, reciprocal partnerships.


ArtsJunktion is located on Treaty One Territory and the homeland of the Metis Nation, and is committed to the work of reconciliation.

We've Moved!!

We know you’re eager for information about our new location and when we’re planning on reopening, but we are still in the middle of the physical move and will share more in time! 
For now, know that we’ll be announcing new workshops, virtual programming and will start accepting your incredible donations as soon as we can! However, it will certainly be a moment until we open for shopping. 
In the meantime, please consider donating financially to support our organization to help us make it through this closure. 
It’s challenging for all nonprofits at this time, and ours is really feeling the pain from a lack of operational funding and the loss of pandemic support. Not to mention the loss in revenue from the incredible community members who regularly donate for materials at our depot. 💖
