Giving Tuesday: Bring Public Art to Your Community!

Make communities smile and shine with public art this Giving Tuesday!

STEPS is thrilled to participate in Giving Tuesday on November 29, 2022, a global day of giving to support the mission of charities and organizations that are positively transforming communities around the world.

Brighten your community with creative public artwork that brings colour to dull outdoor spaces, sparks play and engagement, and makes your neighbourhood safer to work, live and play. Together, we can transform public spaces into fun and accessible outdoor galleries, and engage community members through free artmaking workshops to co-create community-engaged artwork!

Save the Date

This year’s Giving Tuesday is on Tuesday, November 29, 2022. Your support will bring more community-engaged public artwork and creative initiatives to your neighbourhood. These projects aim to engage local residents, foster more fun and play in local communities, and make public spaces feel safe and welcoming!

Who is STEPS Public Art?

STEPS envisions a world where artists and communities co-create meaningful, welcoming and safe public spaces. We are a Canada Revenue Agency registered charity that engages and empowers artists and communities to transform public spaces into vibrant places. Our team is composed of high-performing, highly ethical creative entrepreneurial innovators who truly care about our communities.

We are passionate about amplifying the voices of emerging and underrepresented communities and artists, including Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis), Black, person of colour, newcomer, Disabled, and LGBTQQIP2SAA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, pansexual, two-spirit, asexual, allies, and additional sexual orientations and gender identities). We believe that public art should reflect the diverse identities and perspectives of the communities that host it.
