Arcasian is a small little shop that sells cute and whimsical illustrations as prints, stickers, enamel pins, notebooks, and more designed by Ann Alonso. At its core, Arcasian's primary goal is to spread and share joy to others in the form of art.
Built on the loving memory of a mother lost to cancer, Arcasian was started as a means to channel grief into a new form of love that could be shared with others.
Arcasian stands for love, equality, and empathy. These three pillars shape the foundation in which the company strives to continue to build upon.
It is important that there is a place here where it can be said that Arcasian is committed to lifting and amplifying BIPOC communities. As a company, it is important to be transparent and vocal about the fact that a portion of monthly proceeds goes directly into helping these communities.
Where monthly proceeds are currently contributing:
Black Health Alliance, Toronto
To help improve the health and well-being of Black communities in Canada and combat the racial disparities that exist in the health industry.
Anishnabeg Outreach, Kitchener
To help First Nations, Metis and Inuit by creating a sustainable and comprehensive suite of centralized wrap around services. Anishnabeg Outreach aims to build processes and tools that will position current and future First Nation Metis and Inuit generations as prosperous leaders and strategic partners in Canada's future.
As the company grows, so will this list. Charity pins also currently contribute a portion of their sales to their associated organizations.
Arcasian strives to make long-term commitments to bettering our community.
