HELP ART SAVE LIVES!
In celebration of this event Artbeat is releasing a series of online videos introducing our mascot “Art.” Be sure to join us online to follow his story and meet some of our Alumni Artists as they speak about Art’s role in their lives.
Mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time in our lives and directly affects 20% of our population. At Artbeat we have found that art truly can make a positive difference in our lives. Our Artist’s stories are a testimonial to the positive effects of creativity and the profound changes that can come about when a community of imaginative people come together and share their art, their experiences and their friendship.
All donations in support of this event were made online from April 18th at 6:00 am until April 21st at midnight.
