The Kids Up Front and Vancouver Visual Art Foundation have partnered in 2021 to bring creativity and art to children's homes. We focus on educating and connecting kids through online art classes while they are not able to leave their homes due to the worldwide pandemic.
Kids Up Front is an organization dedicated to ensuring that ALL kids have access to fun, enriching experiences. In 1989, the UN identified that it’s a basic children's right to be able to engage in arts, culture, sports and recreation activities. Through their work, the Kids Up Front is on the right side of history playing a role in a world-class cause. The charity helps children meet their most basic rights, so they can thrive and meet their full potential.
The Face of Today Foundation and Vancouver Visual Art Foundation are like-minded organizations that have partnered in the joint passion of bringing art to children and youth in Vancouver. Through events and youth programming, the aim of this partnership is to provide free holistic art classes to vulnerable youth, to ignite their joy of learning and creativity. We look forward to launching a wide array of programming once the Face of Today Resource Centre and Art Vancouver/Art Ignites can safely open to the public again.
