There is art hidden all around us, quietly hushed by the urban hum of busy traffic and electric lamp lights. Tucked within the cracks along the pavement, there is a poem starving to be written; between the bricks of retired buildings, there is a story longing to be told; and inside the hearts of every human being, regardless of social status, there is a portrait patiently waiting to be painted.

When a person creates art, they are transformed. When they bring that art into the world, the world is transformed. When those on the margins bring their art into the world, the world can be transformed for the better.

The " Outside/In" project offers a dramatic vision of what the world would look like if the edges came to the centre. It is not only a platform for many struggling artist, but also a unique opportunity for you to make a change by sponsoring an artist who holds the spark but lacks the necessary fuel to fulfill their ambitions. Together, we can learn their stories, connect with their artwork, and ignite the fire to cast light where it is needed the most, in your very own Artful Communities.

"Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible." -Paul Klee
