Miracle Thieves is truly a gem in the city of Toronto and I must admit, I haven't seen anything quite like it. Back in the summer, I was invited for the launch of the enterprise and since then I've been in awe of the wonderful collaborations, events, and projects the team has put together. Never ceasing to amaze, and always standing apart from the crowd, Miracle Thieves is dedicated to hosting intimate events, various craft workshops, creative projects, and also providing history classes and programming.
Not many places can afford you the opportunity of being graced by an intimate private acoustic performance by Melanie Fiona when opening its doors, but this place is something special. Just reading the faces of passersby and the attendees of the launch event told me all I needed to know. Miracle Thieves has managed to create a central hub to host Toronto's creative, offering a home they had been longing for. Whether you're looking for an outlet to unleash your inner artist or you are an up and coming artist in the city looking to engage within the community, this is the place for you.
What's even more unique about Miracle Thieves is that its space also has a retail component, curated from a wide variety of talent in the neighborhood and across Toronto. I have to congratulate the team on a job well done. In less than a year they have successfully filled a gap in the Toronto arts community that had evaded everyone else. They have created their own lane, safe in the knowledge that everyday they're leaving a mark and making a change towards creating a healthy, inclusive platform for the they city's brightest and most creative.
