Artist Care Fundraiser 2023

Our goal is to reach $40,000 for The Artist Survival & Healing Fund by July 15, 2023. Your donations will ensure we are able to provide critical support for artists in need. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt.

Vines Art Festival is an organization and festival that is responsive to and nurturing of artists that are working toward land, water and relational justice. Vines brings imagination to everyday spaces by presenting performances, installations and workshops for free across parks on the unceded territories of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Vines goes beyond solely delivering the community unique, powerful and immersive performances that are accessible to all residents of the city. It supports, nurtures and advocates for artists as well. 

The Artist Survival and Healing Fund will provide opportunities to give artists holistic support without the bureaucratic processes that hinder the relationship with not only the artist, but the community as a whole. Funds raised will be allocated for a variety of reasons; healing and wellness practices, culturally relevant training, accessing supplies and tools, time sensitive emergencies. Vines Artist Survival and Healing Fund is visioned and held by Black, Indigenous and folks of colour. Artists who are migrants, houseless, queer, trans and disabled.

Art is a story; and we were fortunate enough to bear witness to hundreds of them at Vines Art Festival. We are prioritizing the lived experiences of QTBIPOC and Disabled artists and fostering honest ongoing relationships and conversations amongst each other. We are creating a community ecosystem that creates and heals in our own parks. Supporting the Vines Artist Survival & Healing fund means championing the vision of a brighter future with more of us in it.
