Humanity in Community


Humanity in Community Foundation is a Registered Non-Profit dedicated to building a vibrant community, arts, and culture in Nanaimo and the surrounding area. We believe art should be accessible to all humans regardless of things like class, colour, gender identity, age, or disability. Humanity in Community combats financial barriers by funding and supporting free and public art, such as large-scale public murals and free walls.

Our public art serves as a platform for Humanity in Community to take action against other socio-economic and socio-cultural issues facing our city and artistic communities such as public art policy, homelessness, addictions, community building, urban rehabilitation, and diversity.
