Join us to learn how UppstArt and Indefinite Arts are collaborating through an online marketplace that uses blockchain technology to create a positive impact in our community.

UppstArt ( https://uppstart.io/ ) is an online marketplace where original artwork is purchased directly from artists and can be re-sold at any time for a low commission, a portion of which is paid directly to the original artist. UppstArt proudly features art from the talented artists at Indefinite Arts Centre and makes it available to art lovers all over the world who feel a strong sense of compassion and support for IAC social good mission.

Indefinite Arts ( https://ouriac.ca/ ) provides artistic training, creation and exhibition opportunities for people – of all ages – with developmental disabilities.
