Support ArtHeart, Where Creativity and Community Come Together

At ArtHeart, we've been nurturing the creative spirit of children, youth, adults, and seniors in Regent Park since 1991. Our journey, marked by dedication and a deep sense of community, has left a lasting impact.

Our Journey:

Originally founded as "A Home for Creative Opportunity," ArtHeart emerged from a vision to create an oasis for learning and creativity in an under-resourced and under-serviced neighbourhood. Over the years, we've grown into a not-for-profit charitable organization, relocating and expanding our services to accommodate the changing needs of the community.

Our Impact:

An external evaluation by Sphaera Research and Consulting in 2018 found that ArtHeart contributes over $2.3 million annually in value to the Regent Park community. This impact isn't just a statistic; it's the lives we've touched and transformed.

Over 30 years: ArtHeart has been a constant in Regent Park for over three decades, providing creative opportunities to generations of residents.

Community Hub: We've become an anchor in a changing community, fostering a sense of creativity, belonging, and togetherness.

Diverse Programs: Our year-round programs and projects, spanning children, youth, adults, and seniors, have empowered individuals to explore their creativity and develop essential skills.

The Challenge:

Recent times have brought unforeseen challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of mental health and wellness, food support, and opportunities for social connection in our community. ArtHeart has stepped up to address these pressing needs, launching "ArtHeart moves forward! Reuniting our community through art and wellness."

Our Programs:

ArtHeart offers a diverse range of year-round programs and projects. These programs have been pivotal in creating positive change in the community.
