Assistance to the DTES

In 2021, the NWCF will initiate support for two organizations, Mission Possible and Just Potters. Both organizations are located in the Downtown East Side and provide opportunities for residents to experience the benefits of working with clay.

In 2018, the NWCF committed to providing funds to Arts Umbrella  for bursaries and scholarships supporting young people in need, enabling them to attend clay classes held at Arts Umbrella facilities throughout BC.

The NWCF has provided support for the following initiatives: 

Fingerplay, 2008-2009, a BCPG traveling exhibition, organized by Kathryn O’Regan, exhibited    around BC during 2008/09, and concluding at the Gallery of BC Ceramics, March 2009.
