Endorser of the United Nations Earth Charter

Vancouver Skyline at Dusk

We’re pleased to announce The Art Party is an endorser of the United Nations Earth Charter. The mission of the Earth Charter Initiative is to promote the transition to sustainable ways of living and a global society founded on a shared ethical framework that includes respect and care for the community of life, ecological integrity, universal human rights, respect for diversity, economic justice, democracy, and a culture of peace.

Since 2010, The Art Party has supported a sustainable local economy. Local businesses enhance our community, connect and support us socially, enhance wealth and employment to establish local economies that are economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible.

The Art Party started as a Facebook Group in 2010 to promote the Main Art Drift, an annual event of local small businesses supporting local artists along Main Street, Vancouver. Today, The Art Party is a social innovation club located at 837 E. Broadway in East Vancouver that promotes Buy Local to Support Local Artists to +7,000 contacts on social media. The Art Party’s buy local post was shared 615 times and liked 64 times on The Art Party Facebook network. This inspired the tagline:

“Buy Local to Support Local Artists”

The Art Party will leverage its +7,000 social media contacts to disseminate the Earth Charter and raise awareness in our local community. The Art Party will collaborate with Earth Charter Partners, Affiliates and with other organizations that have endorsed the Earth Charter in our region.

As an arts-based social club, The Art Party intends to inspire its members to spread the sustainability vision articulated in the Earth Charter through visual art exhibitions to educate the general public throughout Metro Vancouver, Canada starting in 2016.

The Art Party Social Club at Hideaway Nightclub

april1

The Waldorf Hotel Upgrades The Art Party at No Cost to Support Local Community

April 1, 2016 (5pm to 8pm):
The Waldorf Hotel moved The Art Party (www.TheArtParty.org) free entry event at no cost to the Hideaway Nightclub space that fits over 100 people. The Vancouver-based social club for local art and small business members originally booked the back area of Nonna’s, which was no longer available due to an upcoming movie shoot throughout this historic hotel. The Waldorf Hotel needed the lucrative movie contract and moved this event to the Hideaway Nightclub, providing more space for DJ, dancing, networking, live painting and art show.

Local Artists:
DJ Dunbar (Cole Fraser) will be spinning some chilled retro, to complement a duo art exhibition with Christopher Rodrigues (abstract planet artist) and Sarazen Brooks (abstract galaxy artist) at this networking mixer. The Waldorf is also opening the bar and the kitchen by the Hideaway Nightclub to support this event.

Local Small Businesses:
Sponsors include First Canadian Barter Exchange (network of +600 local business owners) running a $23,000 contest called Small Biz Win Big (www.SmallBizWinBig.com), DreamTalks, event-based company with a reach of +30,000 young professionals in Vancouver, Golden Brush Art, live painting competitions and DA Top Talent, business coach for small business owners.

About The Art Party:
The Art Party started as a Facebook Group in 2010 to promote the Main Art Drift, an annual event of local small businesses supporting local artists along Main Street, Vancouver. Today, The Art Party is a social innovation club located in East Vancouver that promotes Buy Local to Support Local Artists to +7,000 contacts on social media. The Art Party’s buy local post was shared 615 times and liked 64 times on The Art Party Facebook network. This inspired the tagline: “Buy Local to Support Local Artists”. The Art Party held its first mixer in 2012 at The Waldorf Hotel, but after the hotel’s closure, the mixers went on hiatus until 2015.

About The Waldorf Hotel:
In January 20, 2013, The Waldorf Hotel was forced to close due to the unexpected sale to Solterra Group of Companies (Solterra), a condominium developer. It had re-opened its doors on October 31, 2010 and showcased the city’s top culture producers like Black Mountain, Douglas Coupland, Rodney Graham, Grimes, Japandroids, Michael Turner, and Paul Wong all headlined events there. Prior to this, the complex, which was built in 1947, had seen better days, and was just one of many dilapidated Eastside dive bars. The closure caused a petition with thousands of art supporters protesting Solterra who was unwilling to sit down and discuss negotiating long-term lease possibilities with former tenant, Arrival Agency.
