Help reduce waste while supporting your local artist-run centre! Thrift for Art's Sake is a fundraiser that supports operations and programming at Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre. There is a variety of gently used clothing and household items available for sale.


Thrift for Art's Sake is a fundraiser developed by Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, through which the organization has created a pop-up "thrift store" with all proceeds supporting Modern Fuel's operations and programming. This innovative fundraising initiative allows community members to support the local artist-run centre while shopping sustainably. Clothing items, accessories, and small household items are showcased in Thrift for Art's Sake.

Stop by the KAC's UNIT 115 exhibition space during regular office hours to shop the collection.

About UNIT 115

UNIT 115 is a small exhibition space in the foyer of the Kingston Arts Council office, located on the first floor of the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning.

Since the reopening of the KAC office to the public in March 2023, UNIT 115 has acted as an exploratory exhibition space; it is presently being utilized by the KAC for partnerships, collaborations, and community-engaged projects. If you are interested in accessing the UNIT 115 space for a community-engaged project, or for a project with a local arts or community organization, please contact our Grants & Programs Coordinator, Violet Tang, at grants@artskingston.ca

Individual artists who are interested in the space but do not meet the above criteria are encouraged to express their interest via email so that we may place you on a contact list to be notified when our individual exhibition program is relaunched.
