If you are looking to make a positive difference within the community and change the life of a young person or adult then becoming a Blank Canvas Community Champion is for you. Community Champions are individuals or companies who want to pledge in making a difference to someone’s life, assisting them in accessing Blank Canvas by MD CIC free classes and projects. You will be supporting in the creative journey of a young person or adult across a 12-month period and be able to follow as they flourish in self-development and upskill passions for their everyday or professional life, ready to fulfil their dreams. By becoming a Community Champion you can be as engaged as preferred with the individual you support, whether it just be a phone call to check in on their progress, attending sessions to see the work they are creating or offering guidance and advice in an area of your expertise. Your support allows the young person or adult to access support from a fully qualified key worker, be part of The Blank Canvas Projects work and perform at many community and charity events that Blank Canvas by MD CIC support.
For businesses who pledge to support, their branding will be displayed within Blank Canvas by MD CIC digital marketing, create one of our Blank Canvas walls that will become a backdrop for performances, and promoted across all our social media outlets, press both nationally and internationally. We understand as businesses owners your time is valuable, but it would be fantastic if at least once in the year you could come into our centre and speak to a group size of your choice about hopes and dreams. Five minutes of someone’s time makes a huge difference to the people we engage with.
Throughout the 12 months pledge of support we will be creating a Blank Canvas wall for the journey of the individual you support, showing the distanced they have travelled. These canvases will then be pieced together to and become the backdrop at our end of year show, promoting a positive message of equality into the community and encouraging more people to become involved in both attending Blank Canvas by MD CIC or becoming a Community Champion for the following 12 months.
