Silkscreened unisex tee designed and made by Edmonton based artist T Salty in support of the community/volunteer run Pekiwewin prayer camp and safe space that relies on donations.
Each t-shirt sold will provide 15 meals for the people living and volunteering at Pekiwewin.
These are printed on Goodwill vintage tees, mostly soft ones from the 80s and 90s. They will vary from shirt to shirt and the sizes available are limited as they have been thrifted.
From the artist:
”This design is based around some conversations I’ve had over the last couple of weeks, mostly with people experiencing houselessness and the folks helping them. People living without permanent housing and people who use drugs deserve safety and dignity, to be free from police brutality, to have adequate shelter. Until then none of us can be free. You can no longer turn away.”
This camp currently functioning solely on community volunteers and donations shows us, all tiers of government, and especially Edmonton city council that it can be possible to provide the needs and support to our vulnerable and houseless population. You can help by donating funds to firstname.lastname@example.org with the note “pekiwewin”.
Note: We offer local pick up in store, but if you would like to support from outside of Edmonton we will ship anywhere within Canada. Understand that this is a not-for-profit community project being donated to Pekiwewin and we charge shipping to cover the cost of packaging/shipping! Opt for pick up if you can!
