This year we have partnered with Coast Mental Health, for us it was a no brainer, it just made sense. This year we will feature one of their artists from The Coast Art Room and not only will that artist receive 50% of their sold art, we will donate 50% of our tickets sales to Coast Mental Health's Art Program.
The Coast Art Room Program, is the foundation of Coast Mental Health, each year their art room plays host to hundreds of members battling with mental illness, the program is run by the hundreds of generous volunteers who are either Emily Carr University graduates, art teachers or established artists and to celebrate their creative endeavors, every September they put on their own art show and auction.
