Artists from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside show new work produced during this fourth annual Out of the Rain program.

Out of the Rain supports artists who face challenges to maintaining regular art practice but who, in spite of these challenges, persevere to make art as a means of survival and self-expression. This year’s twelve artists were provided with art supplies and a street level arts studio to make work for the group exhibition. These artists were selected from over 50 interested and qualified artists.

This year, Out of the Rain is made possible through financial support from Edgewater Casino’s Social Responsibility Fund (through the City of Vancouver), Direct Access Grant funding, a generous contribution from John Casablanca Institute (via the Community Arts Council of Vancouver), and the provision of subsidized street level work space (Flack Block, 175 W Hastings) thanks to The Salient Group.

We would also like to thank Opus Framing and Arts Supplies for assistance with supplies, and the DTES Community Arts Network for early project support and partnership
