From Here & Away’s mission statement is printed on the window of our new pop-up studio on the second floor of The Forks Market: We are a clothing company and art collective that exists to encourage self expression, creativity, and the general well being of the human spirit.

Since the beginning of 2016 we’ve run photography workshops aimed to encourage creative expression in individuals from all walks of life. We also support an ever-growing online community who shares their experiences to a central #FromHereAndAway hashtag. Additionally, we produce ethical clothing, predominantly made in Canada, to support our operations.

Our new studio at The Forks is open to anyone to work, connect, read a book, or just hang out in, under the spirit of that mission statement. In a way, it is a microcosm of what The Forks represents: enabling community, being as accessible as possible, and encouraging self-expression. We use our space at The Forks to anchor operations, sell goods, and hold special events such as concerts and artist talks.

Next time you’re at The Forks, visit our space to study, make art, just sit for a bit, or meet up with a friend.
We're open 11-5 Tuesday to Sunday.
If you’re interested in renting the space for your own community event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.
