Projects and Giving Opportunities

Giving Tuesday was Tuesday November 30th, 2021 – but the holiday giving season continues!

Thank you to our generous community for giving to our Youth Outreach Programs at ECFTA (our community raised just over $6700 for these Youth Outreach programs!).  These art-based programs provide a conduit for healing, belonging and expression.  Our Youth Outreach programs include a youth addiction & recovery program as well as a program that supports students with mild intellectual disabilities.

You can still contribute to our Youth Outreach programs this holiday season!

There are three easy options for giving:

  • Donate on-line through CanadaHelps.org
  • e-transfer to admin@ecfta.ca (please include your name and contact information)
  • Stop by or call our office and we can help with the details (visa, mastercard, cheque) 519-846-9698 or email admin@ecfta.ca

 

 

Youth Outreach Programs: art as a conduit for healing, belonging and expression

This holiday season we are raising awareness and money for our Youth Outreach programs to fuel and sustain our youth outreach programs. These art-based programs provide the conduit for sharing, belonging and healing.

Our Youth Outreach Fund will help the following programs:

 

1. Youth Addiction & Recovery Program: The Healing Power of Art and Creative Expression. This program curriculum incorporates art and creative expression as the conduit for acceptance, sharing and healing. It allows for emotional exploration, development of coping strategies and sharing the challenges of recovery. Run by arts educators, engagement facilitators and a social worker. Each 6 week session will run twice weekly in the gallery and classroom at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Our goal is to offer the program for an entire year, which would require an additional $36,000 in funding.

2. Students with Mild Intellectual Disabilities: Community Connections Through Art. This program is designed to help connect students in the M.I.D / Life Skills program in elementary & high school to the important issues in their community.  It utilizes engaging and informative art projects as the conduit for community connections, personal well-being, belonging and mental health support. The program is run by an Arts Instructor from the Elora Centre for the Arts, and all supplies are included. Our goal is to offer this program for an entire school year – twice a month for elementary students and twice a month for secondary students.  This would require an additional $22,000 in funding.

Let’s make a creative difference in our community. Together.
