One of the many philosophies at Viva Vida Art Gallery is to help our community in any way we can.
From communal art projects, to simply volunteering time to help others, we believe that a business needs to be involved with the world surrounding them.
Over the years we helped bringing up spaces and communities that reflect the changes in culture and and bring in the uniqueness of Point Claire Village
You can look out for the community projects we loved collaborating with various groups. There are more going to be updated soon.
