chART Projects

chART Project’s mission is to use unique public art to drive urban renewal and social engagement, in order to create more sustainable, cohesive and healthier communities. Operating as a collective, we assemble teams of established as well as emerging artists to create projects that break the barriers between cities, residents, artists, and industry partners through collaboration and engagement, allowing seamless development, installation, and facilitation of public art. Because we believe that public art is a catalyst for community engagement rather than passive “public decoration”, stakeholder engagement is a key part of our process, and we often take an active role not only in public art plan development, but also in community strategic planning.

For the last three years, chART has been worked with the Vancouver Parks Department as one of the artist field house resident artist groups. We have worked out of the Oak Park Field house connected to the Marpole Oakridge Community Centre.
