You have the power to change lives in your community

A real difference

When it comes to corporate giving, we know you’re looking to support organizations that make a difference in the community, organizations whose value is on display every day. The Nina has supported the creative impulses of artists with developmental disabilities since 2003 and we’ve changed hundreds of lives in that time. Our artists have exhibited their work across Canada and around the world. They are included in public, private, and corporate collections, including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’s permanent collection. Moreno than all that, however, the work at the Nina gives a voice, an outlet for creative expression, to people who might not otherwise have had one.

We need your help

We want to continue to help our artists create work of the highest quality, to have opportunities to show and sell their work and to express themselves. To do so, we need your help: we offer a variety of ways your business can get involved with the Nina, and make our community a better place.

Sponsor an Exhibition

Our Stollery Gallery hosts a minimum of twelve juried shows per year, most of which feature artists from our collective. At each exhibition, there is an opportunity for a company to act as the exclusive sponsor, whose support ensures we have the resources to mount the show, publicize it and facilitate visitors. Exhibition sponsors are acknowledged on signage in the gallery as well as on all the marketing materials—which can be customized to meet your publicity goals—enhancing your image with customers, shareholders, employees and the general public.

For art lovers, each exhibition is an exciting opportunity to see original art by an inspiring group of artists who happen to have a developmental disability. For collectors, it is a rare opportunity to find great original work at affordable prices.

Sponsorship Benefits

  • Professional custom signage in the Stollery Gallery throughout the exhibition (generally 3 to 4 weeks)
  • Private reception with food and wine for up to 50 guests
  • One piece of original art from a select collection of clay, glass, painting, prints and more

Can you do more?

We have many other opportunities for your organization to get involved with the life-changing work of the Nina’s collective of artists with developmental disabilities. In addition to becoming an artist’s patron, you could sponsor a new or existing program, or support our annual fundraiser by buying tickets, a whole table or sponsoring dessert. We can work closely with you to customize a sponsorship program that meets your particular needs.
