Charitable Donations & Sponsorship Opportunities

When you make a donation to the LivingRoom, you’re ensuring individuals and families in under-served communities can make their mark and tell their story. You’re driving the bus, putting paint brushes and guitars into people’s hands. You’re making sure that someone’s there to listen to the poem, appreciate the sculpture, showing up - in person and online - to be there in the good times and not-so good times to remind folx that making art matters, because they matter. Donate on Facebook or on Canada Helps to receive a charitable tax receipt, or visit us on Patreon to donate in exchange for creative perks.

If your business or organisation is looking to give back - talk to us about becoming a Mobile Art Hive Sponsor. Your logo or company name will be displayed on the exterior of the art bus and on our event signs for all to see as we travel throughout Durham Region and beyond. Email us at today to learn more.
