THUNDER BAY, ON ---- December 6, 2010 ----- Every year, local non-profit arts education organization, Community Arts & Heritage Education Project (CAHEP) produces a series of art cards to be used as a fundraiser. All of the proceeds from our card sales are put directly back into providing accessible, quality arts education programming for the schools and community of Thunder Bay. The artwork on these has been created by learners participating in CAHEP’s programming.
CAHEP empowers children and youth in the community of Thunder Bay by creating and implementing accessible, multi-disciplinary arts and heritage programming and resources. Through this, people will discover the joy of arts and heritage within their own lives and create a legacy by fostering a commitment to culture.
During the hustle and bustle of December, be sure to pick up your copy if the December issue of The Walleye - Thunder Bay's arts & culture alternative. The Walleye is available at several locations in the city, such as the Lake Superior Art Gallery.
The December issue is The Walleye's biggest to date and the magazine is full of gift suggestions with a focus on local books, hand-made crafts and music. They've also included green tips aimed at reducing waste this holiday season. In addition, the "Top 5" includes the editors' favourite events and the event calendar is the most comprehensive listing in Thunder Bay.
As an avid supporter of the local art scene, The Walleye has sponsored ad space for the Community Arts & Heritage Project (CAHEP).
