Arts Etobicoke is working with community leaders of the Kingsview Village- the Westway (KVW) area to help deliver art packages to members of this community.
We understand that right now simply going to the store comes with risks to everyone, but it is even harder for families living in high-density apartment complexes where it is almost impossible to practice social distancing when leaving your unit. Many of our community members are living with multiple generations of family members which increases the risks of leaving the home.
Arts Etobicoke has been delivering art packages to community members throughout Etobicoke since early June. We want our community, especially the children and youth, to have free and accessible arts and culture experiences while maintaining safe social distancing practices. Each package contains a variety of art supplies including crayons, markers, paper, and specialized colouring sheets created by a local artist (with a chance to win some amazing prizes like grocery store gift cards), and are free to those who register for them.
At the moment, we are distributing packages to residents living in 320, 330 and 340 Dixon Road. Condo Buildings only. For questions or inquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
