Come out and celebrate local art while supporting at-risk youth.
The Children of the Street Society is hosting its annual Canvas of Change fundraising event on September 27, 2018.
Now in its fourth year, Canvas of Change will include music, food, wine, fundraising and the highlight of the evening will be a live art competition.
Watch 15 of Vancouver’s best live-painters compete in an attempt to raise funds for the city’s high-risk youth.
Artists will get just 50 minutes to paint there most creative art pieces as guests watch on.
All proceeds from the event support the Society’s Youth Art Engagement Program. This is a free program offered to some of Vancouver’s most at-risk, vulnerable, young people. Youth get the opportunity to participate in nine sessions facilitated by leaders who provide ongoing mentorship and guidance. At the end of it all, youth will get to present their work at an art gallery celebration.
“Our project’s goal is to keep these kids safe from sexual exploitation, while at the same time, empowering them to raise awareness of this devastating crime through their own creation of social justice art,” said Children of the Street Society, in a statement.
