Last night Antyx Community Arts celebrated their past year of work in the community and attendees got to experience a sneak preview of the almost completed Play on Wheels trailer. It was the first time a group of people outside of our project team got to interact with our creation, and it was amazing to see how much fun people had playing together! We are showing the community that play is good for us and brings people together. With the amount of smiles and positive interactions that were exchanged, we are getting real excited to bring Play on Wheels to the community.
You can see experience Play on Wheels for yourself this Friday September 5th at the artBOX on 17e (1807 42nd Street SE) from 5:00-8:30pm. This will be our big reveal and celebration before launching the project into the community.

We will also be open on Saturday from 11-5pm before we pack up and head to Beakerhead Festival! If you are really antsy, you can stop by tonight for a sneak preview and chat with the artists as we are completing the final installs on the trailer. 6:00-8:00pm.
We have 27 days left in our Invest YYC campaign, and are half way to our minimum goal of $2500. We want so badly to pay our artists fairly for their endless hours of hard work, as well as to pay a fair price for our amazing build space at the artBOX to help sustain its existence, and finally to pay for some of the costs we incurred and ensure a stable future for the Play on Wheels trailer in the community.
