The Art Machine has been chosen as one of the nominees in the $1,000,000 “Pepsi Refresh Project” and could win as much as $10,000 to support our community arts program. Only 300 proposals were accepted and the Art Machine has made it to the finals. The final winners will be determined by the number of online votes their project receives. The people choose who wins.

You can help The Art Machine to win by voting daily for us online at www.refresheverything.ca .  Each person with an email address is allowed to vote. We ask that you vote for only our project “The Art Machine” (under arts and culture) in the $10,000 category. Voting begins on March 1 and ends on April 30 with finalists being announced on May 1. Mark your calendars and be sure to ask all your friends and relatives across Canada to join in the voting too. Anyone can vote for us. Networking is critical!

The Art Machine is a program operated by the Hope & District Arts Council and is located at  777 – 5th Avenue. The Art Machine provides community arts and crafts programming for people of all ages, backgrounds, income and experience. The majority of attendees are children and seniors. Instruction and materials are provided at a minimal cost. The program is heavily subsidized and therefore it is necessary for the Hope & District Arts Council to conduct fundraisers and seek funding to support the continuation of this community program.

If you have any questions, please the HDAC office 604-869-3400.
