Time never stops for us to catch up, and it is high time that we caught up with everyone! 2014 is looking great for C4C! Our Fundraising Events “Walking In Their Shoes” at Fluevog in Vancouver and Calgary in 2012 succussfully raised 10K for our upcoming endeavors this year and we could not be more excited! This February we are partnering with Gallery Gachet to run an open set of photography workshops for residents of the DTES, and we are in the planning stages for a larger program mid year in Mexico, again partnering with Isla Urbana, Sistema BioBolsa and Proyecto ConcentrArte. The Gallery Gachet program will be run by Cara Seccafian, who will be leading community residents interested in weekly dropin camera, computer and technology workshops. The workshops in Mexico will be run off of the Paz Paz Bus, an old converted school bus being used for arts based programs in the communities that our Mexican partners currently work in. We are also making plans for another summer program here in Vancouver and have strong potential for a summer workshop in Calgary too! It feels like we are growing in leaps and bounds and are increasingly thankful for all the support we have received over the past 2 years!
It is so exciting to be partnering with these amazing organizations, all believe that creativity is an integral part of life and strive to share that with everyone! We love the work that they do and we are honored to be working with them!
