According to a recent survey 64% of artists and creative workers are unemployed! Every opportunity to perform, showcase or display in person has vanished for the time being. The creative community is deeply wounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, I’ve joined RAW Artists in an effort to help fundraise directly to artists for a project titled, The National Arts Drive.
On Saturday, June 20, 2020, we’re calling all artists in every creative medium to showcase from their front lawns, driveways, balconies, stoops or studios. We’re inviting the community at-large to take a drive and experience the creative culture living in their own neighbourhood. The driving experience will be paired with a mobile website and interactive map. As drivers approach an installation or performance they can donate directly to the artist, follow them on social media and/or flag their online shop for future purchase.
We at ARBOUR HEIGHTS STUDIO are excited that we will be participating in this event. Drive by and see what art we will be displaying in our creative front yard
