Press Release: VIBE Arts x Rotary International Community-made Murals on display in TTC Stations until July 2018

Mural Makers hard at work – March 20 2018 at Arts Etobicoke

From February through April 2018, VIBE Arts teamed up with five community partners across Ontario with the goal of creating murals in response to the question ‘What does community mean to me?’. Five groups of diverse individuals worked hard over a series of 8 – 10 workshops to complete the mural making process. Each group of participants collaboratively brainstormed, designed and executed the painting of two large, 4’ x 6’ murals. Once the murals were complete, they returned to VIBE Arts to be prepared for exhibition before being installed in various TTC stations on May 28th 2018.

The murals, funded by Rotary International Clubs and exhibited in five stations by Pattison Outdoor, will remain until this July. It is always a privilege to have VIBE Arts projects displayed in high-traffic areas. Should you come across one of our murals during your travels, stop and snap a photo. Photos posted online and tagged @VIBEartsTO #myVIBE earn the chance to be featured.

For more information on the locations of the finished murals, check out the table below.

Help VIBE Arts win $10,000 this June! #VIBE360

Join the Great Canadian Giving Challenge and help VIBE Arts win $10,000! 

VIBE Arts is pleased to announce that this June, we will be taking part in CanadaHelp’s Great Canadian Giving Challenge. With this initiative, we encourage Canadians to support their favourite causes throughout summer, a time when giving reaches its lowest levels.

What is The Great Canadian Giving Challenge? 

It is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to VIBE Arts in June via CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca, automatically enters our organization to win an additional $10,000 donation. On Canada Day, one lucky charity will receive the grand prize of $10,000. In 2017, 77,785 Canadians donated almost $10 million to over 10,000 charities, representing an 83% increase in donations compared to June 2014.

 

What is VIBE Art’s Fundraising Goal this June? 

Through our #VIBE360 campaign in collaboration with the Great Canadian Giving Challenge, our objective is to raise $3,600 in June 2018. #VIBE360 speaks to the tremendous impact that results from every donation, regardless of size.

Arts education can make a 360 degree impact on a young person’s life. At VIBE Arts, we provide accessible art education to under-resourced neighbourhoods, because we believe that no child should miss out on finding their creative spark. Help us on our mission to increase our programming, and reach more communities. Donate to VIBE Arts this June.
