Syphon is an arts and culture publication produced by Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre that is meant to act as a conduit between the arts community in Kingston and communities elsewhere. It was created in response to the lack of critical arts commentary and coverage in local publications, and seen as a way to increase exposure to experimental and non-commercial art practices.

Syphon has a mandate to feature local arts coverage in conjunction with national and international projects, and an emphasis on arts scenes and activities that are seen as peripheral. It acts, in essence, as a record and communiqué for small regional arts communities throughout the country.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous funding support of the Ontario Arts Council through its Publishing Organizations Projects program, as well as the operating support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the Kingston Arts Council, and our many local sponsors.
