The 9th Annual UPwithART show, in partnership with Centre at the Fork – Museum London, was an incredible success with enormous thanks to you! We successfully raised over $150,000 at Museum London on April 27th, 2019, with 70 works of awesome art on display along with our guests’ love of art, a passion to end homelessness, and genuine support for Unity Project.
This year your support of UPwithART is currently at work supporting Unity Project to adapt “Housing First” to our emergency shelter framework and helping vulnerable people (aged 16 and up) end or avoid their experience of homelessness through diverting people from shelter, obtaining safe housing, and maintaining stability within the community. With a new partnership formed with Museum London, your gift is also at work supporting children and Indigenous programming to deepen the visitor experience and advance a lively, creative cultural centre that inspires, encourages and engages the community.
We are extremely grateful for your continued support, participation and presence within the community, and together we are able to exhibit the intersection of arts, culture & social justice and the importance of them in establishing a vibrant community.
We hope you join us next year at Museum London for the cities best arty-party!
