about DANI's art program

Going on our 9th year!

Year after year we continue to grow and enhance our remarkable Art Program and expose our DANI artists to different themes and styles of art. All year long they apply their careful craftsmanship and passion to their art projects, working in groups and gaining great pride in selling their artwork. This show is truly a one-of-a-kind experience to give back to the community while being immersed in an evening of culture and unity. 

We are an organization like no other and every year we go above and beyond, creating partnerships with artists and organizations like the Canadian Opera Company and iterating our participants into the world of art. So come and meet our artists and enjoy a unique outdoor art gallery under the stars!
