UPwithART was mounted in 2005 and again in 2007 as a grassroots gala to celebrate and showcase the many artists among Unity Project residents, staff, volunteers and founding members. It came of age in 2011 when artists Jamelie Hassan and Ron Benner contributed a work, told two friends…and so on.
UPwithART now boasts a stellar roster of renowned and remarkable artists joining a richly talented and inspirational Unity Project community.
UPwithART has inspired community through culture and is proud to embody something of the cultural and social justice spirit that characterized the former Embassy Cultural House (a unique cultural centre within the former Embassy Hotel from 1983 – 1990), located across the street from the current Unity Project site. Ron Benner and Jamelie Hassan were among its founding members, along with other artists also represented in the UPwithART show.
