Special Project at Forward House
'Our Community, Our Art' Showcase (December 3-5, 2017)
Thanks to a grant that Forward House received through the Parksville-Qualicum Community Foundation and the Community Fund for Canada's 150th, we were able to exhibit some of our clients' amazing art work at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville in December.
More than 120 people visited the exhibit. There were paintings, jewelry, photographs, 3-dimensional art, sculptures, quilts, and poetry. As well as celebrating Canada's 150th birthday, our guests had the opportunity to enjoy the art and learn more about mental health and the services we provide at Forward House. The exhibit demonstrated beautifully what people can do when they and their talents are supported and celebrated.
Our heartfelt thanks to the Parksville Qualicum Community Foundation, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, Parks West Business Products, Best Buy, and the Quality Resort Bayside for their generous support of this project. We couldn't have done it without you!
