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 coloring sheets (with a chance to win some amazing prizes like grocery store gift cards), and are free to those who register for them.
These packages are intended for families living in the Kingsview Village – The Westway community, and specifically for the following postal codes: M9R and M9P. At this time we will be unable to accommodate requests outside of this catchment area.
