NEXTDOOR community art group

$245 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 31 months
Nextdoor has had an active 2017. We have hosted artist visits and successfully exhibited a group exhibition with the support of WIA projects at OISE in Toronto titled "leaning in". This year we have been meeting on Tuesday evenings to connect in a friendly non-judgemental atmosphere, create art and skill share. We are continuing to fundraise, as we are a local not for profit community group.

"Community based initiatives such as NEXTDOOR are integral to the healing process of individuals, and also contributes to building strong, self-reliant community networks. Empowering citizens in their healing journey is good for everyone. I highly recommend supporting this program! "
- Marsha Clark, Visual Artist

NEXTDOOR is an inclusive arts-based group. We come together on a weekly basis (Tuesday's from 6:00-7:30pm) to reflect on poetry, and to enjoy the process of art making in the spirit of building community and friendship. All Welcome (18+). Free.

This program is important to me because I believe in the positive and healing impact that having a safe and creative space can give us. 

For your generosity, I thank you!

Hello everyone,

Just a quick update.
I have set the date to begin the NEXTDOOR art group for June 13th 2016 and people are all ready to start. I look forward to posting some of the artwork the group will be creating. Most of all I look forward to meeting the people who join the group and fostering new friendships.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
― Rumi

Thank you for all of your support and continued encouragement. We still have a little bit to go and hope to reach our funding goal in the next two weeks.

Cheers,

Candace
