About "Sanctuary"

"Sanctuary" seeks to break down barriers as we explore the notions of "art," "spirituality" and "community" in a quickly gentrifying neighbourhood. It’s an opportunity for newcomers and long-time residents to come together in celebration, and create a safe place for self-expression, experimentation, and artistic collaboration. Hosted by visual artist Sebastiaan Bremer, "Sanctuary" began in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and will soon grow and cross international borders.

"Through the magic of art, Bremer is working to bring all aspects of community together."
