Our Mission


The CVCAF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation, was formed in 2006 to commemorate the artistic passion of Caroline Victoria Coldicutt.

We are  dedicated to supporting and nurturing student visual artists, painters, filmmakers, poets and photographers to create work which will help to stimulate their own artistic vision while creating inspiration for  others. The CVCAF offers three main initiatives to inform and assist aspiring student artists about how they can implement their creative ideas that can positively impact their homes, schools, communities and the world.

Our philanthropic efforts include offering support to artists through scholarships at various schools in Canada and the United States. We have created the Caroline Victoria Rose for the Arts to provide funding of our endowment initiatives as well as to provide a lasting reminder of the beauty art brings to the lives of each and every one of us.

Coming in 2017, we will introduce our CVC ARTS FEST, an initiative designed for student artists without boundaries.  Our arts festival will provide a forum where students can share their visual arts or other media in an online festival format.  The CVC ARTS FEST is in its pilot stage and will be launching a “call for entries” for its inaugural online festival.
