Call For Artists


Out of the Rain  2005 was a multi-faceted art event that  created awareness about homelessness in Vancouver and raise funds to benefit people living on the street. Artists were invited to create functional or art umbrellas or donate conceptual works around the theme, Out of The Rain, for a major exhibition, auction and gala event at The Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre in November 2005. Funds raised from the event were directed to rehabilitative art programs that work with youth and adults at risk, as well as individuals already living on the street. The recipients that received funds were Brenda Carr Studio Society and The workshop at 29 East Hastings Street.

Artists, art therapists and community programmers were invited to work on the project. Through the arts, this core group participated on a citywide community art event and fundraiser. Art has the ability to communicate and effect change in a non-verbal and non- threatening way and open doors for further discussion to effect change. The events planned empowered artists to create an environment where the homeless and members of the general public expressed their ideas and opinions creatively in a non-judgmental way. Artists, through this collective process brought a deeper understanding about homelessness to groups and individuals that would not normally interact.

Artists were extremely generous and enthusiastic about being involved in this project and their participation was instrumental in the success of Out of the Rain.
