We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Open Door Group, who will be joining us as a sponsor for INCLUSION 2023. As BC’s largest not-for-profit employment services provider, they share our vision of promoting well-being for all by opening doors to sustainable and meaningful employment. Their Project EveryBODY campaign is a testament to their dedication to inclusivity, advocating for inclusivity in various areas of society, including film, art, employment, youth causes, and health and recreation.
Through generous support from both corporate and community partners, we are turning our dream of an inclusive arts community into a reality. Together with Open Door Group, our goal is to expand artist participation and reach new communities where we can make a positive impact. We are particularly thrilled to announce that we have decided to remove commission fees for artists, ensuring that they receive full financial benefit for their incredible work and talent.
Our shared belief in the transformative power of art and culture is at the core of our mission. That’s why Open Door Group and posAbilities are proud to co-present the 19th Annual INCLUSION Art Show & Sale and the 2023 PEB Celebrates Live event, a commemoration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. We believe that arts and culture play a vital role in bringing beauty, meaning, insight, and human connections into our lives, which is why we’re passionate about expanding networks of support and creating employment opportunities for artists within our communities.
“Open Door Group is thrilled to sponsor and promote the INCLUSION Art Show as a part of our Project EveryBODY campaign, fostering a diverse and thriving community. Through our partnership with posAbilities, we celebrate the achievements of individuals of all abilities and advocate for a more inclusive society. We are excited about the prospect of future events and partnership opportunities with posAbilities as we aim to promote inclusivity in film, art, employment, health, and more. Together, we strive to create accessible spaces that showcase talents, connect with a diverse audience, and further disability inclusion in our communities.” – Jennifer Do, Communications & Marketing Manager, Open Door Group
