Past Events

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 local renowned, emerging and Unity Project Project participant artists, including some of Canada’s most significant artists. In 2019, Unity Project and Museum London joined forces to conduct UPwithART in a collaborative partnership demonstrating how vital is the interweaving of arts, culture and social justice in the fabric of a healthy, vibrant community.
