PULP: paper art party 2017

For the second year in a row, PULP: paper art party took over Geary Lane, creating a blue bin playground for over 400 guests, in the unique two-story space.  

The fundraising event, integrating live music with a design and art exhibit, is designed to examine the current life-cycle of discarded materials and investigate alternative uses.

PULP: paper art party 2017 hosted 25+ artists and designers, including Aleks Bartosik, BD Studio, ALLO Studio, and a guy serving hot beverages out of a reclaimed materials box! Our guests, artists, and sponsors helped to raise $2100 to support the Yonge Street Mission Evergreen Centre for Street-Involved Youth. The funds this year will be used to help provide training for Evergreen’s youth, in the social enterprise PULP helped to launch with Evergreen last year: Jubilee Designs. This design and decor business idea is founded on the creativity and resilience of the centre’s youth. Youth are able to focus on their primary goals such as mental health or housing stability, while working a few hours a week in a supportive and creative environment. They create beautiful decorations and accessories using discarded and re-purposed material, which will be sold through Etsy.
