Care Package from CUCCR

We miss you, our community

So, since we can't be together this year we decided to rework our annual artist residency. Instead of a small selection of undergraduate Fine Arts students, we asked everyone to join us in making with reused materials! We invited you; Concordia students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members to request a pre-assembled envelope of an assortment of materials and make from the comfort of your home. Packages are free and we will be sending them out throughout December/January.  

Package requests now closed

Due to the overwhelming response of over 600 package requests,
we have closed registration as of midnight on Friday, December 11th.


If you weren't able to request a package, we encourage you to join us for virtual creation sessions in January and February using materials you have around the house.

Once you receive your materials, we encourage you to:

  1. Snap a photo of your raw materials

  2. Make something for yourself // about something you care about // for someone you care about // with someone you care about

  3. Join a making event hosted by 4th Space in January/February or connect with others in the community via our FB group.

  4. Send us a photo/short video of what you made and participate in an online art show in March 2021

  5. Then, if you want, refill this envelope and send a care package on to someone else.

Share what you are making

Feel free to get started as soon as you receive your package, but check back in January. We've partnered with the 4th Space to co-host live making sessions via Zoom to help us fight isolation and share creative ideas and skills. If you are interested in taking part in or leading a session, check that off in the request form. We will be in touch about days and times in the near future.

We are looking forward to making with you 🙂

Share what you make

Take a picture of your creation and share it with us in one of the following ways:

*Envelopes have been packed following all COVID-19 protocols.
Please take care when sourcing additional materials from outside your home.

Request deadline is December 11, 2020
