New School of Colour participants will showcase their work on equal footing with some of Canada’s most celebrated artists at Unity Project’s UPwithART – June 20 at The Palace Theatre.
“New School of Colour is an incredible program and a real gift to our community.” Says Silvia Langer, Unity Project’s Development Director.
The grassroots, free art program provides opportunity for youth and adults dealing with issues of poverty, mental health and other social barriers to experience art and make art in a social space. Unity Project residents contribute to UPwithART through New School.
“Unity Project residents are UPwithART’s inspiration,” says Langer . “UPwithART is transformative – it’s an important fundraiser for our cause and brings dignity to those experiencing poverty and homelessness. We are honoured to partner with New School of Colour and the many who make up the UPwithART team!”
