The Wesbrook Community Centre

From the day we received the grant, we have been determined to put together the best event possible. As many of us know, artists today are stigmatized and often thought of as “inferior” - after all, we do nothing except paint stuff that honestly have no relation to anything of use just to make a living and try to please the upper class by creating obscure “modern” artworks that literally no one in the general population understands except for “the elites”, right?
...Right?

Prospect Avenue and Neighbourhood

With a neighbourhood street busy with children enjoying the park, tennis courts and recreation fields, we wanted to do something to calm the traffic. We heard of a similar project in Victoria, spoke with them and met to discuss ideas. We polled the neighbourhood to understand the level of support for this idea.

Neighbourhood Small Grants between $50 to $500 to support projects that connect and engage neighbours, help people share skills and knowledge, increase sense of belonging, and celebrate diversity.

But what does that mean? And how do you apply?

We created a short video with an overview of the grants, information about how to apply, and details about what happens next.

"A free community event fostering understanding, support and awareness for those living with Parkinson's"

Huge thanks to New Westminster Neighbourhood Small Grants, Family Services of Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Foundation for our grant that brought together the best group of people from our community and beyond for a fun filled, creative and neighbourly event. We had quite a range of ages attending Painting for Parkinson's, from 7 months to 89 years old!

Also thank you to all our sponsors, donators and supporters:
