Cool Aid, Our Place and First Metropolitan Church invite you to the Emerging Artists Christmas Craft Fair, on Saturday, November 30th, from 10 am to 2 pm, at First Metropolitan United Church Hall, located at 932 Balmoral Road.
Media can get an advance sneak peek at some participating artists’ works and have an opportunity to interview artists Joseph, Beryl and Bob the day before the Fair, on Friday, November 29, from 11 am to 12 noon at the First Met Church Hall.
This Craft Fair is designed to highlight the talents of both low-income and emerging artists, many of whom have never had the chance to sell their creations to the public before. Every artist in attendance is below the low-income cut off or faces substantial barriers to participation in society, and many have never participated in a craft fair before or even shown their work publicly. Every artist in attendance last year sold some of their work.
Over 45 vendors will display their arts and crafts, many from Cool Aid and Our Place programs. A music corner will feature several emerging musical artists.
Admission is free, the event will be cash only, and refreshments and a raffle are available by donation.
