About


The OUTSIDE/IN Project offers a vision of what the world could look like if we brought the edges to the centre. We aim to:

  • Crowdfund $5000

  • Sponsor 25 artists

  • Produce a short film


Sponsor An Artist


We have been reaching out to talented artists currently living on the street. We are signing up twenty five individuals who hold ‘artful ambitions’, such as one woman who would like to publish a children’s book, a young man with deft carving skills who would like to produce spirit animal wedding bands, and a otherworldly painter who would like to help learning how to establish and manage his own online store.


On September 30th we will be launching our crowdfunding campaign on FundRazr, and we invite all of you to support these artists and assist them in gaining the tools of creative expression to transform their lives and communities.


Outside/In Film


One of the most striking elements of this project is the lives, stories and perspectives shared by the artists we serve. Mandip Sandhu, of Sand Dune Films, will be leading a team of volunteers to document this process and showcase the work of artists on the margins. We will be showing this film during our Showcase Event on December 19th at Hycroft Mansion.


Etsy Store


For those we help who produce artwork, but would prefer not to put it in galleries or sell it on the street, we have developed a commission free etsy store. Artists may store their art with one of our partners, list it for sale as a team member on our store, and when the sale is processed, receive 100% of the profits. This also becomes an opportunity to teach computer and marketing skills to artists on the margins, and allows supporters who have sponsored an artist to see and share what has been produced.
