Founded in 1997, SAVAC remains the only non-profit, artist run centre in Canada dedicated to the development and presentation of contemporary visual art by South Asian artists. Our mission is to produce innovative programs that critically explore issues and ideas shaping South Asian identities and experiences.
SAVAC develops and produces exhibitions that are national in scope, but we are actively engaged with regional and international discussions that inform the development of contemporary South Asian art. We support artists from South Asia and the diaspora, through the various stages in their careers, by offering opportunities for career development, alongside our regular programming.
Your donation will assist in providing free workshops for SAVAC members, mentoring and internship opportunities for emerging South Asian artists and curators, and educational resources and programming that will run in parallel to SAVAC exhibitions. If there is a particular area of programming you would like to support, you can specify.
Donations of $30+ are tax-deductible and donors will be sent a charitable receipt. For further information on donating to SAVAC, please contact Indu Vashist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations are processed through canadahelps.org, a secure payment processing site for charities.
