Let us recall the objective of the exhibition-auction: to present more than 300 works by Impatients and renowned artists and to raise $300,000 through a live and online auction. These funds will allow the organization to continue to offer free creative workshops to more than 850 people with mental health issues.
“At Les Impatients, I am considered an artist. The Impatients saved my life, and they continue to save my life; every time I come here, I know that there is something that will come out of me, ”shares Diane Major, spokesperson for the Impatients, in a press release.
