Making a Difference Indigenous Artists

Hi, everybody
Skwachàys Lodge is a social enterprise from Vancouver, Canada that combines the excellent hospitality in 18 unique guest suites with a street-level Aboriginal fair trade gallery. We are honored to be Canada’s first Aboriginal arts and culture hotel. It is operated by the Vancouver Aboriginal Society (VNHS), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing for low-income Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Vancouver, and hosted our famous artists With a residence plan, you can help keep the donation plan.
Like many other companies, the pandemic has had a devastating financial impact on us. Provided generous funding for the living/working studios of 24 indigenous artists. Hotels and galleries are part of the "Residential Artist Program", which includes: professional development; peer guidance; shared working and design spaces;
Representing fair trade galleries and licensing partnerships;
The housing subsidy for 24 artists in residence is more than US$200,000 per year, and the funding comes entirely from the profits generated by hotels and galleries. If we cannot continue to achieve this goal, then two things will definitely happen: the hotel and gallery will be closed, and the residency artist program will end
One of our measures to avoid this consequence before the international borders are reopened and people start to travel again is to provide crowdfunding campaigns with six different donation amounts, which provides you with the opportunity to make a difference and help us maintain indigenous artists Opportunity in the residence program.
We at Skwachàys Lodge, thank you very much for taking the time to review our story and supporting our Skwachàys community. I wish you a happy holiday and good health. Please be careful!
