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 are asking everyone to join us in making with reused materials! We invite 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 as we receive your requests. Once you receive your materials, we encourage you to:

  1. Snap a photo of your raw materials
  2. Make something!!! It could be — for you (self care) // about something you care about // for someone you care about // with someone you care about
  3. Send us a photo/short video of what you made
  4. Then, if you want… Send a care package forward to someone else. This envelope costs about $2 to send in Canada if you keep it under 250 grams.

We’ve partnered with the 4th Space to co-host live making sessions. The sessions will take place in January and February, so if you are interested in taking part in or leading a session, check that off in the request form below. We will be in touch about days/times in the near future.

We are looking forward to making with you 🙂
