Fall 2013 at ArtsCan Circle
It’s hard to believe we are already thinking about Fall but at ArtsCan we are gearing up for our 4 trips this fall to Fort Hope, White Dog, Mishkeegogamang and Pikangikum. An average trip can cost between $7,000 – $10,000 for flights and shipping of donated instruments and art supplies to remote communities where our volunteer artists hold weeklong music and art workshops.
We are thrilled that Jim Priebe is going to be hosting another ArtsCan Fundraising Concert as part of the Music and Peace weekend in Stouffville (see below for details). Even though ArtsCan Circle is a volunteer-based effort, fundraising events, donations and grants are essential to make it possible to send teams of volunteer artists to faraway communities.
It’s also a great way to get involved with ArtsCan. If you are interested in hosting your own concert fundraiser for ArtsCan please contact us or download the Tips on Running a Fundraising Concert from our website. ArtsCan would be happy to support you and assist you in putting together a concert that benefits an ArtsCan trip. Please email Jennie Cross at firstname.lastname@example.org
