Artscape Launches
New Charitable Foundation

In the winter of 2006, Artscape received charitable status for Artscape Foundation from Canada Revenue Agency. Since approval for establishing the Foundation was received, Artscape has been abuzz with activity and excitement about the new edition to the Artscape group of companies and the extension of Artscape's charitable activities.

While a number of plans and strategies have been hammered out, the purpose of the Foundation is quite simple. Artscape Foundation will support the charitable work of Artscape including its programming and educational activities and portions of capital projects that serve a charitable purpose.

The Foundation's board will be chaired by Glen Murray, acclaimed urbanist and former mayor of Winnipeg. On an operational level, the Foundation will be led by Dawood Khan, Executive Director. Both Glen and Dawood are passionate about Artscape and its mission and are dedicated to developing the resources necessary to sustain Artscape's role as a practitioner, educator and facilitator in the emerging field of creative community building.

The first order of business for the Foundation will be to raise the balance of funds necessary for the completion of Green Arts Barns. While Artscape has successfully raised a large portion of the total construction budget of the Barns, the Foundation's task is to engage the private sector and individual stakeholders. A Green Arts Barns Campaign Cabinet is being formed to assist with this process. 

In the years ahead, the Foundation will provide much needed fuel to support the growth and development of Artscape and the explosion of interest in its work. Its creation is a major step forward in ensuring long-term organizational health and the realization of its full potential.
