PROVIDING TRAINING

Donations ensure that participating in our Training Program (including all materials) is always free to member artists. We hire instructors with lived experience to teach all classes.

ENABLING OPPORTUNITIES

Your support enables artists to present their work to the public in exhibitions, screenings and performances. Artists are paid fairly for their work, have the opportunity to sell their art and grow their audience.

SHARING STORIES

Support excellence in public programming through our signature events, the Rendezvous With Madness festival and the Being Scene exhibition,which promote dialogue with audiences around mental health and addiction experiences.

 

CREATING COMMUNITY

Your donation builds a supportive peer community for artists with lived experience working alongside each other, providing mutual support and reducing social isolation.

“Your support is essential for Workman Arts to fulfil its mission of directly supporting artists with lived experience, providing arts programming and producing impactful public presentations to reduce stigma against persons with lived experience of mental illness. Please join me as a fellow monthly donor so that Workman Arts’ artists can continue to provide our community with meaningful art, music, theatre and film.”
