Osum has partnered with the Cold Lake Public Library to help bring an Art Lending Program to the community. This program is based on the concept of “Multiple Literacies”; any form of media (digital, text, or a painting or musical composition) involves a certain kind of literacy to facilitate understanding and meaning.
Osum is very pleased to support this capacity building initiative. In May, 2008, we commissioned numerous interviews with leaders in the community, and for each participant we donated $200 to the library in support of the art lending program. In total, we donated $4000 to the program.
