WHY RADICAL GENEROSITY?

RADICAL GENEROSITY = Philanthropy (Reimagined)

The story of Slavo Cech, the inspiriation behind Radical Generosity.

We see it everyday in our community, acts of generosity, big and small, quiet and loud.  It was during the peak of the COVID pandemic, when everyone was told to stay home and people were struggling to cope with the isolation. A local Edmonton artist, Slavo Cech, was experiencing the same struggles and thought about WHAT HE COULD DO in that time of uncertainty, to use his art to lighten the heaviness we were all feeling.

His idea, a spontaneous ART HUNT in Edmonton’s river valley! He would hide a widely poplular art sculpture called “Bent Not Broken”, somewhere in the river valley and drop clues on Twitter. He just wanted to give people a reason to get outside and feel some happiness.

What happened next was truly remarkable. Families and individuals safely left their homes to participate in the art hunt! It was exciting, stimulating, and brought light into the lives of Edmontonians during a dark time. Families loved it, kids loved it, people isolating alone had a purpose to get outside. Thank you Slavo, for your spirit of generosity and kindness. The Art Hunt is stilling going strong two years later!
