20 JUNE 2015
The Palace Theatre - 710 Dundas St
A cool mix of people made the scene and gave an amazing performance, whether as patron, sponsor, artist, collector, volunteer, or performer (and many wore many hats). We made a red carpet splash in Old East Village with the #WePlayOn Musicians entertaining the arriving crowd and passersby. The stage performance brought a multi-media operatic dimension to Unity Project’s story – it left us breathless!
This year’s My Life in Colour Award honoured Jeremy Jeresky and the New School of Colour, as Unity Project’s most inspirational, influential and artful person of 2015. There was not a not-amazing work of art in the show! Every work – 74 pieces in total SOLD – helped us achieve $30,000 in art sales and topping last year by almost $4,000!
Thank you all for helping raise some $45,000 (net proceeds) for Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness and the men, women and youth who benefit from our life skills programming.
Proceeds support Unity Project’s Life Skills program, helping vulnerable Londoners to better navigate “the system”, to gain employment, to care for themselves and others, and to maintain stability and independence in a home of their own. To purchase tickets, click here.
A red carpet welcome to The Mitchell and Kathryn Baran Family Foundation debuting in 2015 as UPwithART’s Platinum Presenting sponsor! The Baran Family and Trudell Medical Limited have carried the Rooftop Sponsor role for our Christmas Carol event for the past two years. Alas, with the folding of Orchestra London, Unity Project will not be doing A Christmas Carol in future. We are grateful for re-directing their support to UPwithART and sustaining Unity.
