Virtual Charity Festivals 2020

Virtual Charity Festivals 2020

Collaborations With IMPACT Festival

The Art Party is collaborating with IMPACT Festival for joint charity festivals July 16 to 20 and September 5 weekend. These events are live stream to 3D Virtual World with over 10 million active users and Zoom, a video and web conferencing platform. The Art Party has grown an audience of +10,000 social media contacts with +1000 Mailchimp contacts for workshops and events. 

The United Nations has declared September 5 yearly as International Day of Charity. As a non-profit in Canada, The Art Party is planning to participate and collaborate with IMPACT Festival for online events with DJs and live paintings, along with break out rooms for live workshops using Zoom.

For IMPACT Festivals in 2020, The Art Party is providing Google Ad Grants for promotions in 2020. The Art Party is also providing support for Zoom workshops with Zoom moderators during the virtual festivals and also in-between to promote the workshop trainers.

There are multiple causes for IMPACT Festivals in 2020, including the Artist Relief  Impact Fund to support artists who perform at Impact Festival and its associated streams. 100% of this fund will be given to participating artists, divided fairly by the fraction of viewers of each artist’s stream. IMPACT Festival is also supplementing through grand stand sponsorship. ❤️

IMPACT Festival in 2019 had over 1,000 live attendees and raised over $40,000 for charities. For 2020, IMPACT Festival will be virtual with the goal of over 100,000 and up to 1 million virtual attendees on Twitch.TV and up to 1,000 participants on Zoom to raise online cash donations.

Why Join A Virtual Festival? 

Burning Man will be virtual this year and take place in the multiverse because of the ongoing threat of COVID-19. It usually brings in crowds of over 80,000 to Black Rock, Nevada, but in 2020 it will take place online. It’s not just Burning Man, but all summer festivals are banned in 2020; all governments in Canada and the USA have placed a ban on all large gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These summer festivals typically feature live music, art, alternative workshops, food vendors and more. 

There is a need for community building and social engagement, even with social distancing laws. The virtual charity festivals will take place entirely online. Similar to live in-person workshops at festivals, virtual workshops at a virtual festival could have break-out rooms with art-making, vegan / veg cooking demos, yoga, and skillshare workshops. 

The Art Party is focused on vegan / veg cooking demos for the Zoom workshops as this is a good fit with the IMPACT Festival audience who is looking to reduce their carbon footprint with a more plant-based diet. There is also a surge in online vegan / veg cooking classes since COVID-19 outbreak, with millions of cooking related searches on Google. The current and other previous pandemics are zoonotic (disease transmission from animals to humans). We will require at least 2 volunteer moderators to help up to 1,000 participants during Zoom breakout sessions to view and send video, screen share, annotate and security. 

About The Art Party

The Art Party focuses on the development and promotions of Creatives & Changemakers in the Creative Economy. We provide services that build and connect our communities with social networking, as well as space for arts cultural events and skills training for Creatives & Changemakers. This empowers these passionate entrepreneurs to make a positive social impact. We’ve co-produced and co-promoted over 30 events and workshops since 2014. 

We co-produced and co-promoted the successful Crowdfunding Success to Help 270 Creatives & Changemakers get their projects funded with The Tribe (sponsored workshop space), FundRazr (keynote speaker), Spring (community promotions) and Blackbox Print (graphic design and printed postcards). Crowdfunding already has a successful track record funding artistic and creative projects, or community-oriented social entrepreneurship projects.

Earth Charter® Endorser

The Art Party is an endorser of Earth Charter® principles for a just, sustainable and peaceful planet. Earth Charter as an ethical framework for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century.

It is a vision of hope and a call to action. 

The Art Party participated in Earth Charter events in Canada by providing artists on Earth Charter Day. The Art Party also collaborated on a local food event at DUDOC Vancouver. The Art Party intends to seek support for the Virtual Charity Day Festival with Earth Charter Canada. As a sponsor, Earth Charter Canada could host an Earth Charter workshop.

Battle of the Brush 37


The Art Party Has Been Promoting Battle of the Brush Since 2013

Battle of the Brush 37: Season 7 Grand Finale – “Freestyle”

The Battle of the Brush is a live painting competition where multiple teams of artists compete in a time-limited competition before their spontaneous collective works are displayed and voted on by local art lovers and people in attendance.

How does it work? A group of artists are placed into multiple teams where they will blend their brushstrokes to compete for the Golden Brush title.
Then the brush-to-brush action heats up as each team of artists’ unique painting styles splatter onto the canvas. The creativity, then, unfolds into an impromptu gallery to be viewed and judged by the guests in attendance.
