Since 2016, Centre[3] and the Mental Health Rights Coalition have partnered to present Sitelines, an ongoing project that offers access to the arts for adults with lived experience of mental health and/or addiction by providing free art-based workshops, courses, and open studios. This project aims to have a lasting impact for participants via artistic and cultural enrichment.
Over three years, Sitelines has been able to provide free art programming for over 300 people to engage in the community, find their voice, and share stories.

“Sitelines was deeply concerned with my autonomy, with making work that I wanted to do, and to help me realize concepts and ideas that were not just about my depression, autism, or anxiety…. It felt like a space where risk was rewarded, and that people were allowed to be who they were. I never felt unsafe in the basement print studio, and I feel unsafe most places. They [Sitelines facilitators] were encouraging, curious, and committed to having the best work come out of that space.”Steacy Easton, Sitelines participant.

Sitelines is reaching out to our community to help continue this program.

With your support, we will continue to offer:  a weekly open studio and a variety of courses and workshops including painting en plein air, photography, songwriting, drumming, DJing, poetry, sculpture, screen printing, documentary making, and so much more.

We also offer one-off events such as Art Crawl Guided Tours.
