Through a narrative description of community-engaged arts interventions based on action research with the Toronto Free Gallery, an artist-run centre and activist space, this article demonstrates how feminist arts activism uncovers the multiple exclusions that creative city policies and practices entrench. In some ways, community-engaged arts interventions can be complicit in exclusionary gen-trification dynamics, particularly the production of spaces of white privilege and heteronormativity. Feminist artists and activists are also finding ways to performatively and playfully push back at this highly regulated, gendered, and raced regime
