* Helping Hands from PRAC

Frequently we receive requests from organizations asking for donations from our members. It is not PRAC's policy to send requests to members, but as some members may choose to support different causes, we provide this list for them.

When you request donated artwork we know you have a plan to promote the event/ raffle in order for you to raise the most funds, so please include:

  • where the donation will be published/promoted (how the artist will be promoted/acknowledged)
  • do you issue a tax receipt
  • is it a 50/50 sharing of funds raised
  • what percentage of the value will the minimum bid be set at?
  • will you supply the artist with the name of the purchaser?
  • will there be a free event ticket for the artist?

Our artists are most generous and we look forward helping both you and the artist benefit from your partnership.

* Music and Theatre Auditions
* Promotional Tips

Between listing your event with ArtScene and PRAC's website, you have made a good start promoting your event.

Vision: We envision a world where the arts are valued and accessible to all,
and where we inspire others to embrace the arts as an essential part of their lives.

Mission: Our mission is to build a vibrant and inclusive arts community that celebrates
and supports visual, audio and new media art. We strive to connect and engage
diverse audiences while providing resources and opportunities for artists to thrive
and create impactful work.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
We are currently located on land, which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange among the
Mississauga Peoples, and is the traditional and treaty territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
We honour, recognize, and respect this nation and Indigenous Peoples as the traditional stewards of the lands
and waters on which we meet today.
