A fundraiser to support mental health through the arts.

About this Event

This is an annual fundraising project to support

This project began in 2016 by Christine Kumchy, an occupational therapist. It is a labour of love designed to bring artists and people together for mental health. This book is made up of art drawn by people from and/or living in Ottawa, and is compiled into a colouring book. The proceeds from the sales support three non-profit causes:

1) A.R.T. in Action Ottawa (who provide free art workshops for youth with multiple barriers),

2) C.H.E.O. YouthNet Pens & Paint program (an early intervention art-based program that focuses on coping with stress and understanding mental health through visual arts and creative writing), and

3) The Cultural Arts Studio (dedicated to the sharing and preservation of Afro-Caribbean culture through dance, wellness & community programs).
