Community Arts Projects in Halifax, NS

We are pleased to provide a SEED grant to Halifax's Immigrant Migrant Women's Association to welcome and support the integration and cultural inclusion of im/migrant women, mothers and their children in an open art space (Art Hive). The IMWAH art hive is providing a space for conversation, storytelling, art making, reading and community building, encouraging and celebrating the strengths and creative capacities of newcomers and the newcomer community.

4Cs Foundation was pleased to provide a SEED grant of $3000.00 to the Craig Gallery at Alderney Landing to kick-start it's Art Cart portable art studio project to give young people a chance to explore art in the Alderney Landing market space. “It’s an opportunity to have fun and to create a working art studio for our community to enjoy,” says Lee Cripps, curator of the gallery.

There is currently a GoFundMe page to help the gallery raise the additional funds. https://www.gofundme.com/f/craigartstudio?pc=fb_dn_postdonate_r&rcid=r01-156090340162-58714a97edf34a41&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fb_dn_postdonate_r&fbclid=IwAR3dfcZlLgQe8LZg-4-Keel5ZF_P6fHbXd7NW_hUwf7ALqrA_Puv7aQgL7c
