TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

OCTOBER, 2018

Brendan Shaw

What piece of art did you buy?

Connection 5

What organization(s) did you volunteer with to pay for your art?

  • Elizabeth Fry Society (Kamloops)
  • Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association
  • Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak
  • United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo
  • Pit Stop
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (Kamloops)

What do you like best about the organization you volunteered for?

This is a tough question to answer! Each charity and organization has their own best qualities, so by having the ability to volunteer at different ones I was able to enjoy different aspects of governance, advocacy, fundraising and hands on work. My most memorable experiences were: helping to develop 2nd Stage Housing for Elizabeth Fry Society, participating in Ribfest with Daybreak Rotary, fundraising and presenting financial awards for smaller charities with United Way GenNext and working in a team environment to serve food to a marginalized population with Pit Stop.

What do you like best about your artwork?

I like everything about it. The size, shapes, tones and overall abstract feel to it really stood out to me right from the beginning. As soon as I saw this piece of artwork at Timeraiser, I knew I had to do what I could to get it.

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I learned a lot attending Timeraiser. The social setting allowed me to get to know each non profit organization and learn more about the great work that is being done in our community.  Additionally, I thought the concept of volunteer hours to pay for art was a great idea which brought in a lot of like minded individuals and made the event fun to participate in.

OUR EVENT

SPONSORS

All the artwork in a Kamloops This Week Timeraiser is purchased at market value  - none of the artists were asked to donate their work.  This is one of the key principles of the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser - it supports the careers of emerging artists in our community.  Corporate and personal donations pay for all the pieces - their generosity is a key part of the Timeraiser's success.

OUR PARTICIPATING

AGENCIES

We aim to have 20 different agencies in attendance at the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser.  Each agency is present with a spokesperson to tell you about their mission, volunteer opportunities and answer any questions you have.  This list will grow and change slightly until we finalize everyone.

  • Brennans Ugly Sweater Run
  • Kamloops Arts Council
  • People in Motion
  • Kamloops Society for the Written Arts
