Art is something that seems to be a luxury, but all at once necessary. Would it be possible to live without art? Yes, but the world would be a dreary place with out it. There is something evocative, something that reaches deep within when we engage with art, in whatever form it may take. Somehow, the artist’s voice comes through and touches us, stirs something from within and causes us to think and pause.
Papergirl is a movement about giving that away. The organization gathers art from artists, anyone, who is willing to give their art for donation. The volunteers gather them up, and on one day, on bikes, they go throughout the city, giving these donated pieces of art away. It’s an amazing event of purely giving, and it is so great to see people giving and receiving, with nothing more than blessing them with art on the agenda.
Check out papergirlvancouver.com if you have art you want to give, or if you want to stay tuned on what’s going with them!
We had a blast filming this little piece for them, and we can’t wait to see where this can go.
