ViBrant ARC: Art Reconnecting Community
ViBrant ARC (Art Reconnecting Community) is a grassroots arts and cultural group that gathers together curious people, explores artful ideas, nurtures culture and encourages conversation. It is our desire to help facilitate and encourage citizen-led/organized community events that will fulfill this vision.
ViBrant ARC acknowledges that with the continued kindness and wisdom of the Six Nations people of the Grand River we are able to share and grow with this beautiful land along the Grand River.
For the past year, our group has been organizing free monthly artist talks called Salon ARC. We invite an artist to give a 30-minute talk to share their story of what inspires them to be the creative soul that they are. We engage the artist in a Q&A and then we encourage the attendees to introduce themself to someone they don't know that has been curious to come out for the talk.
We have also organized free creative workshops: poetry, miniature clay sculpture and origami. Our group also worked with community members to build 4 Free Little Art Galleries which are free to a community member in the Brantford, Brant County and Six Nations community.
We are actively working as well to have community indoor and outdoor murals created.
We welcome donations to help us to continue to provide free accessible events throughout the communities of Brantford, Brant County and Six Nations of the Grand River.
This event is part of a hub:
The County of Brant is pleased to support many community groups and creatives to present a diverse collection of Culture Days programming.
