Hello All!! I am trying to raise funds to open a community art co-op in our little, remote, Yukon community of Faro. The main goal is to open a space where members of the community can have a place to paint or pursue other artistic talents. The money will be used to rent, fix, and open seperate, smaller spaces in the studio that each artis can use as their own, to work, sell, or just feel like they have a spot to work in peace, and leave their supplies without having to do it at home.
Our little town draws many tourists to the community, through various festivals, and the unbelievable scenery and nature that abounds in this area of the Yukon. This co-op would be a great place for artist to have their work showcased, and hopefully sold, or just enjoyed by many people from all over the world!
I sincerely hope you can help with this endevour, as it is expensive here to rent space, and get supplies to fix it, considering we are almost 400 km away from Whitehorse, and shipping things up to Faro can be costly.
Thank you in advance to anyone who donates to our dream!! It will be sincerely appreciated!! With enough money we can get our space up and running by Spring, when the tourist season begins!!!
