Art! Vancouver believes in giving back to our community. During our 2015 and 2016 shows we auctioned off artworks, donating the earnings to Alley Outreach Project – a youth led initiative operating in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. We also partnered with the Lionsgate Hospital Foundation’s Healing Power of Art in 2015, a program designed to enhance patient care and outcomes through the display of art in healthcare facilities.
