Arts & Minds Canada is committed to supporting mental health initiatives through support and immersion in the Arts, while pursuing a compassionate vision which broadens the acceptance, recognition, and awareness of mental health throughout Canada.

Supporting our Community through Programming
Along with our annual Gala Contemporary Art Auction Event, Arts & Minds Canada funds the TiltingAIR program, Art With Impact, and other mental health and wellness initiatives.
As our 2020 main Fundraising effort, we are hosting a Small Art Aquisition. Each mini-art-collection is hand chosen for you by a panel of artist’s on Fogo Island. Get yours before they're gone!

Art & Minds Canada hosted its first interactive, online workshop during Canada's Mental Health Week on May 7th, 2020. Presented by Art With Impact, we gathered over 40 people on-line, from Fogo Island to Toronto.
Arts & Minds Canada's support of TiltingAIR programs brings artists into the community of Tilting to experience living on Fogo Island, while interacting and sharing their art and work with locals. Here at a local coffee shop people gathered for a workshop given by one of our artists.
