Elora Centre for the Arts


For Giving Tuesday in Elora, Fergus and the surrounding Centre Wellington communities, the Elora Centre for the Arts is raising awareness and donations for our Planet Youth program in support of youth mental health. The project engages high school and elementary schoool students through art, creativity and reflection. This year, our Planet Youth theme is #therealselfieproject where students consider the good, the challenging and quirky side of themselves in creating their project. The project becomes the catalyst for reflection about themselves in the past, present and how they see themselves in the future. The project takes "art on the road" to elementary school students and culminates with a youth art exhibition in the gallery featuring over 100 student work and reflections at the Elora Centre for the Arts, complete with opening reception and prizes for top entries.

This collaborative project includes collaboration with CMHA's YouthTalk, Centre Wellington District High School, the Upper Grand District School Board Support Services and others.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support this program in 2020. Thanks to a handful of amazing community supporters, we are able to offer a DOLLAR MATCH giving program, where every dollar donated (up to $5,000) will be matched!
