XPACE is proud to host the Gerelt Mur Fundraiser. In Mongolia's urban centre, Ulan Bator, domestic abuse, alcoholism and financial desperation have driven many homeless children to living in the sewer systems. Gerelt Mur is an exceptional grassroots Mongolian charity supporting these children and their families. All funds raised from this art fundraiser will go directly to Gerelt Mur to help buy yurts, clothing, food and educational materials.

XPACE is a non-profit artist- and student-run centre committed to the exposure of multi-disciplinary emerging artists in a professional context that is recognized within the local and international contemporary art and design community. Their goal is to build a bridge between art and design students and their professional counterparts by offering a platform in which they may exhibit their works and be externally recognized, which in turn promotes relevant programming that instigates public discourse and propels the development of contemporary art and design.
