Dark Side of the Moon is a multi-media arts showcase highlighting local up-and-coming talent.

About this event

The Dark Side of the Moon refers to a headspace that artists go to when they create. In times of pain, hardship, and adversity, creatives are gifted in their ability to make something out of nothing, highlighting the beauty of the experiences that shape them. This show is an ode to the ups and downs of life and it’s a way for us to give back to the art lovers that fuel our work. Featured pieces will leave you feeling connected to us and yourselves, and hopefully serve as a reminder that you, too, can create magic out of your experiences.

While touching on mental health, artists will also be presenting works that they’re simply proud of, cultivating the DIY scene that arose when COVID made the world come to a pause; the silver-lining of this turbulent time being that many of us finally had a chance to explore our creativity.

At the very core of the Dark Side of the Moon art show is the intent to build community and give back to the community that built us. There's no better way to do this than to partner with a local organization like Support Sistem (@SupportSistem.ca), through which we can have a direct impact on our people. At the event, we'll have a designated donation box on behalf of SS. Proceeds will go to single-parent and low-income families. The hope is that through mutual aid, community outreach, and events like ours, we can encourage and inspire both the next generation, while supporting the generation before us, in the chase towards their dreams and overall social equity.

Come see what's on the Dark Side of the Moon on August 27th, 2022.
