Artists sought for fundraiser to support local grassroots animal shelters
Concordia’s students, staff and faculty are constantly coming up with new community engagement initiatives. This time around, two friends have come together to lend a helping hand to our animal friends.
“We thought it would be a great way to nurture our already awesome (and very generous) Concordia community spirit while supporting a cause that’s close to our hearts,” says Nizzola.
The pair are renting tables at the fair to artists, who can use them to sell their work throughout the day. The fees are $50 for staff and faculty, and $25 for students and seniors.
“All the rental fees will go to support local grassroots animal rescue agencies, but everything you make selling your art is yours to keep,” Nizzola says.
The art fair will take place in the atrium of the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (EV) from noon until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23.
So far, 10 tables have been rented, but Nizzola says there’s plenty of room still available for interested creative types.
“We’re also looking for items for our silent auction and raffle,” she adds.
