"That which creates itself cannot be destroyed"

The Pandora Arts Collective Society is a registered non-profit society that runs Open Studio programs. We also sponsor and collaborate on various community and art events throughout the year.

Our motto, "That which creates itself cannot be destroyed," echoes the empowering effect that creating art in a group setting has for individuals and their communities.

In the original myth Pandora had a honey jar full of blessings from the first created woman. Pandora (meaning all giver) opened the jar and blessings flew away, but she contained hope.

Hope - belief in the possibility of fulfillment. Creativity is a hopeful endeavour to express oneself to others as a gift.

Important News: We are now a Canadian Registered Charity, as of August 3, 2012. We will issue charitable tax receipts for any donation of $20 or over.
