Made by gals
We are presently working through our Arts Education Project (thank you Ontario Arts Council!!) Made By GALs, and we are having the best time doing so! We are working with a variety of social service organizations including CultureLink, Eva's Satellite, Working Women Community Centre, and Central Toronto Youth Services.
We are offering free six-week courses to participants and others who are in financial need in Kensington Market, employing many female-identified practicing artists from the city. This project has truly been a dream to realize.
We will update again with some photos from our projects, and hugely appreciate all of your support with this and our other work.
We are so excited for our third annual art auction fundraiser on Thursday, December 8th at Xpace Cultural Centre (303 Lansdowne Ave.) We have over 35 pieces of artwork for silent auction, an amazing raffle, drinks by Stiegl, music by DJ Mary Mack & DJ Chanteclair. It is going to be a magical evening!
Raffle prizes donated by: Eleventh House, Ghost, Bully Boy Lingerie, Minnow Bathers, ElevenThirty, Philistine, Backyard, Axe Throwing League, Province Apothecary, and many other wonderful companies.
We are raising funds specifically so that we can offer free art education in social services spaces to women and girls who wouldn't otherwise have access to such programming. The work we have done so far has been transformative and moving, and we hope to continue to grow and reach out to more organizations and neighbourhoods in the city.
Your attendance and support are hugely appreciated, and make a significant difference.
