UPwithART was an enormous success for Unity Project and in every way.
This event is deeply meaningful to our cause for the community it creates among us, in the respect it generates and the support it draws for the Unity Project and its life skills and housing programming.

It was a win-win-win: Our charity reaped great financial and community value; Purchasers went home with great art at good value, and; Art sold at an average 82% of market value!
The Ron Benner and Jamelie Hassan exhibit was a special event in itself – once-in-a-lifetime… we are lucky people and very honoured.
The UPwithARTists collection was a significant marvel of artist generosity, talent and beauty.
The New School of Colour exhibit was rich, inspired, well-received and sold at an average 106% of value!
The dance performance moved some to tears. The music was cool. CTV’s Tara Overholt was our Emcee for goodness sake! We made a big red carpet splash in Old East Village, London, Ontario, Canada.
We hope you had an electric experience. From beginning to end we thoroughly enjoyed your company.’
Many, many thanks to Sponsors, Committee, Advisors, Volunteers and UP residents
