What Is the Art Bikers Program?

The ART BIKERS is a mobile community arts program that builds community by making art with children, families and residents in neighbourhoods throughout Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

The Art Bikers program has three goals:

1) To provide fun and engaging opportunities for the community members of all ages to enjoy and connect through art making.

2) To make Art an event that happens at a street, neighbourhood and community level.

3) To stimulate interest and participation in community arts and arts-based community development in the Halifax, Nova Scotia

Founded in 2007 as part of the 4Cs Foundation, the Art Bikers program has worked with over 4000 individuals in a wide range of social communities across ages, abilities, languages, races and ethnicities. We have also trained and employed more than 20 community artists. 

Our team of community artists ride bicycles pulling colourful trailers full of art materials and "pop-up" in public spaces in neighbourhoods throughout greater Halifax. Our community artists facilitate free collaborative art projects and  arts-based activities that open up a world of creativity, connection, and fun for children and other community members.
