International Day of People with Disability

December 3, 2014

December 3 is the international observance of people living with disabilities promoted by the United Nations since 1992. It has been celebrated with varying degrees of success around the planet. The observance of the day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. It was originally called "International Day of Disabled Persons". Each year the day focuses on a different issue.

Creative Spirit Art Centre invites you to visit us not only on Dec. 3 but during the rest of the year too. We are open to having you meet our artists and view our collections and exhibitions and to take home a memento of your visit.

Gone Postal...

Through January 2015

We have a wonderful limited edition poster designed by the fine folks at the Barrett Welsh ad agency (right), perfect for framing or as a gift for the holidays featuring images from artists and volunteers who make art here at Creative Spirit and beyond! The works are available in the gallery open Tuesday through Friday.

This exhibition is a tribute to 22 years of post card invitations and mailouts to members, organizations and volunteers.

- A Loonie will buy you a postcard by Mendelson Joe and his caricatures of politicians, or Hanni Sager's multi-media works or from our studio artists, friends and volunteers!

Donations can be made for our invitations from past exhibitions. Kristine Erglis (also featured on the poster), has included a few of her creative envelopes. Below are some examples of original work in our exhibition.

See  you soon!
