Canadian Artists for the Poor (CAAP) celebrated its 10th year anniversary art walk (Heart for Art 2018) along Stephen Avenue (9am to 5pm). The streets were filled with families and friends which joined us for a fun filled day of art, music and entertainment. Heart for Art hosted and supported the work of talented artists from the different non for profit organizations and other local artists across the city.

Heart for Art 2017

image23

In 2017 Art Walk changed its name to Heart for Art. On June 29, 2017 we chose to spotlight only local artists who came from disadvantaged and/vulnerable life circumstances. We solely partnered with non-for-profits across the city (e.g. the Mustard Seed, the Drop-in Centre, Autism Calgary, etc). We gave Calagry an opportunity to walk along Stephen Avenue and admire, purchase, and connect with local artists. 

Heart for Art 2017 forever changed Canadian Artists Against Poverty’s (formerly Canadians Artists for the Poor) mission and vision. We became committed to empowering and educating vulnerable communities across Calgary by providing art instruction classes and opportunities to mitigate social isolation.

Art Walk 2016

ArtWalk is an opportunity for the City of Calgary to connect with talented artists across Alberta. This year Canadian Artists for the Poor (CAP) hosted their 8th annual ArtWalk on Thursday, August 18, 2016 along Stephen Avenue. Calgarians near and far travelled to the downtown core to admire and purchase various artwork from our supporting artists. A portion of the money collected was donated to the Calgary Association of Self Help's (currently Elements Mental Health Centre) art class. We look forward to carrying out our mission and vision through events like ArtWalk.
