SS United Church
Artists From the Fringe is a group of over 30 artists who attend the volunteer run program called ArtJam, sponsored by SSAC. The program provides a safe, welcoming space for members of our marginalized community, where they can be defined as creators and artists, rather than by the challenges they regularly face. By celebrating their unique creative accomplishments and reinforcing the value of their work through public exhibitions, we promote positive self-identities and help build self-esteem. Obtaining support from various community organizations has provided the ability to build bridges between our members and the rest of the community. This is our first Silent Art Auction and the proceeds will go to the artists and to the ArtJam program.
