The Toronto Public Space Committee and Arts4All co-realized this mural project for and with the Weston Pelham Park Neighbourhood Action Partnership.

Hi Friends of MABELLEarts - For the past three months we've been working and playing with an amazing group of individuals and families who currently reside in shelter while seeking asylum in Canada. We love these folks! We just got word that over 100 of them have expressed interest in attending free workshops we have scheduled in Broadacres Park this week and next. We're over the moon! If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer or support MABELLEarts - we can think of no better time then NOW! We are accepting food donations for snacks, donations of tents (for shade and shelter from rain) and looking for cash donations to support art supplies, transportation costs and more. We're also looking for volunteers who can help welcome and support participants of all ages to have fun and create art together. Email info@mabellearts.ca for more info and check out: www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/mabellearts/ to give. THANK YOU!
