Since it was founded in 2003, the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts has been home to one of Edmonton’s most interesting art collectives, made up entirely of artists with developmental disabilities. What began as a collective of one has grown to include almost 200 members, whose work has been shown throughout Canada and the world. Artists at the Nina work in a variety of mediums: drawing, painting, clay, printmaking, fibre arts, performing arts and more. The Nina collective has participated in a variety of artistic endeavours, such as a trip to Scotland, a digital residency with Wales, collaboration with Citie Ballet, a series of music videos, exhibitions across Edmonton, and Blockout with SNAP.
"All people have the right to achieve their highest potential, which includes the right to creative expression. Creativity lies within everyone and can be powerfully expressed through the arts. the Nina believes in the importance of creation and exhibition of art by those who face barriers to artistic expression." - The Nina Haggerty Center for the Arts
Hundr Viðar is excited to announce our recent collaboration with the Nina Haggerty Center for the Arts. Together, we have created a series of tote-backpacks featuring drawings from Dale Badger, and bamboo scarves featuring the work of Kim Hung-Ho. Together with a team of fantastic volunteers, we screen printed, sewed, and assembled all bags from scratch in Edmonton. These one of a kind products will be available at Tix on the Square, and at the Nina Haggerty Center's gift shop. We are thrilled for our ongoing partnership, and the new and and exciting creations that will result.
Creative, unique products, created by creative unique people.
100% of the proceeds from these products go to the Nina Haggerty Center for the Arts.
