art for all!

Your tax-receiptable contribution to ArtsJunktion helps marginalized children and families, street affected folks, educators and many more individuals and organizations access pay-what-you-can art supplies and art workshops, AND supports the work of environmental sustainability through creative reuse and waste diversion. We depend on our monthly contributors, sponsors, and donors that together want to impact the arts and the environment.  Your gift supports the creative and community development of Winnipeg schools, organizations, and emerging artists, to name just a few.    

“ArtsJunktion is the perfect place for scrapbooking supplies. ...I’m changing my life around, you know. My partner and I want to start a family and we’re scrapbooking to hold our memories together. “-- Tia   

"ArtsJunktion helps people in different ways. You see everybody’s artwork and their creative ways and you get ideas. …it really helps with my mental health issues. It helps me feel more like I have a sense of place." -- Ashley  


ArtsJunktion's mission is to provide Tia, Ashley and everyone with opportunities for art.  We want to fundraise $10000 for a year of ArtHives, Crafternoons, low barrier community art programming and more! The pandemic has shown us even more clearly what the transformative and healing power that creativity has for people and we want to ensure that we can continue to support Art for All through retaining our pay-what-you-can-ethos and we need your help! ArtsJunktion is committed to supporting and empowering all community members through artistic skill-development, workshops, creative reuse education, resource sharing, and pay-what-you-can art supplies.    

   

Just this past month: 

  • ArtsJunktion helped Syrian refugees access sewing machines and fabric, paint, and more.  

  • We taught 20 people of all ages how to create art from pipe cleaners and hired a local recycle artist, Moneca Sinclaire, to teach a Dream Catcher Making Workshop for free.

  • We presented a workshop promoting mental health through art therapy.   

  • We continue to provide meaningful employment and volunteer opportunities for people and artists from all walks of life. 

  • We donated decorations and materials, to create a fun and welcoming environment at Little Brown Jug's Pride Event. 

  • We organized and provided art and school supplies for free to Community 204.  

  • We set up a pay-what-you-can booth at the South Osborne Farmer's Market where we handed out supplies and crafted alongside of community members.   

  • We had 400+ individuals and organizations access over 3333kg materials through our depot and were able to rescue 2900kg from the landfill. We are beginning to surpass pre-pandemic numbers at this point!    

 

And with your support, we can do more!
