What we do

Art With A Heart belongs to the community. Its very premise is rooted in groups of people who come together to build a better community, through art.

We attract a range of people from across Durham Region, including:

  • long-time residents to newcomers,
  • children to seniors,
  • people who have experienced work or housing instability to people who are affluent,
  • active community members to people who have had conflict with the law,
  • and from working artists to those who are just kindling their inner creativity.

Art With A Heart helps people from different cultures and races meet and positively influence each other. Because we bring so many groups together, we ask all Art With A Heart staff, supporters, partners, tenants and participants to respect our Code of Conduct and our Mission, and to act within our Values.
