Hastings Division 18’s Grade 5/6 students are putting on an art show and you’re invited!
A message from the class…
Hello Hastings Community!
Division 18’s Grade 5/6 students would like to invite you to our art fundraiser, ‘Building Black Futures’, starting next week at The Laughing Bean!
Our class has been inspired by the important contributions of Black icons and the Black Lives Matter movement, and has organised this fundraiser in the hopes that it can serve as a small but meaningful step in the building of Black futures in Vancouver.
This art exhibit and fundraiser will present art made by students featuring important Black trailblazers and icons. These artworks are not only visual representations, but also educational keepsakes: they include short biographies celebrating the life and accomplishments of these famous figures. It is our hope that by sharing these works with our community we can help spread their stories and contributions more widely.
This art exhibit and fundraiser will take place at The Laughing Bean (2695 East Hastings) and will run from Monday, June 21 through Sunday, June 27. The Laughing Bean is open until 4 pm every day. Artworks will be sold on a sliding scale starting at $10. The Laughing Bean accepts cash and debit. 100% of funds raised will be donated to the Hogan’s Alley Society, a non-profit organization committed to promoting and preserving Vancouver’s Black History!
We hope you can visit the exhibit!:)
