Heart of the City
CreArt is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating accessible art and community spaces where people share their knowledge in a horizontal approach to education and community development. We strongly believe in the power of arts to produce positive social transformation in our society.
Our vision is to open and create new opportunities to engage more communities with the concept of free education in arts and community development. CreArt believes that art is not a product, but rather an expression of ourselves, our community and reflection of society. CreArt makes its programs accessible to the general public in order to plant seeds in the community to allow artists to develop and grow the culture.
CreArt is comprised of people who strongly believe in the power of arts, mentorship, and community development to produce social transformation in our communities.
The interaction between artists and the community will bring more people into the practice of self-expression and encourage active debate about social problems.
If you would like to support CreArt we are always looking for in-kind donations of space to set up activities, events, and workshops.
Also if you have an instrument at home that you would like to contribute to us, CreArt can re-donate the instrument to another person.
In-kind donations of art supplies, mass media equipment, computers, etc, can also support our work.
Monetary donations also help CreArt to achieve its goal of providing access to creative programming all over the city, bringing arts to every community in Edmonton.
If you would like to get involved you can come and be part of the CreArtisans team. Community artists who use the arts to challenge society to be better. Also you can come and be part of CreArt activities and support the movement in promoting what are we doing by word of mouth!
