Opening May 6th join Gallery Gachet in launching an exhibition fundraiser: IN THIS TOGETHER
May 6th-June 19th: an in-house exhibition with an online auction featuring the renowned Gallery Gachet community of local, national and international artists working in diverse mediums and artistic styles. Artwork available at a range of price-points.
After twenty-one years of receiving core funding from the Provincial Ministry of Health, Gallery Gachet learned this past autumn that a shift in funding priorities and redefinition of mental healthcare for our neighbourhood was resulting in the conclusion of our contract with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. This sudden financial cut, now in effect, amounts to half of the organization’s overall revenue. In the past six months our friends, community partners and networks have come forward offering various support. We are restructuring with new and hopeful possibilities ahead. Now is the time to support Gallery Gachet’s future.
An iconic and integral community hub with extensive experience as a frontline facility, Gallery Gachet is an artist-run centre located in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, Tsleil-Watuth, Musqueam and Squamish territories. Through artistic means we demystify issues related to mental health and social justice. We educate the public and strive to further the well-being of our communities. Our collectively-run exhibition and studio space empowers participants as artists and curators. Gallery Gachet also coordinates a volunteer program, mentoring artists. Featuring a range of visual arts, performance and and community-engaged programming, we involve developing artists and professionals alike in collaboration and dialogue. We consider art and culture to be necessary elements of a healthy society.
