Papillon Vinyl Fundraiser

Are you looking for a meaningful holiday gift that will also support ArtsCan Circle's mission? Let’s convey one clear message to Indigenous, Inuit, Innu and Metis youth in remote northern communities: You are valued, and your voices are important. 


For your purchase of $35 or more (inclusive of taxes and shipping), you will receive one of 200 copies of the Special Pressing of Papillon, along with a free album download. Click here to order


 John McMillian is one of our longtime supporters. During the early stages of the Pandemic, John was getting ready to release his new album, "Papillon," with the proceeds going to ArtsCan Circle. John's goal is to raise $4000. Many of the venues got cancelled or postponed, but John never gave up. He has raised over $3000 for ArtsCan Circle's "Papillon Vinyl" Fundraiser when restrictions lifted. 


John's music is described as "listening to John play live is like watching someone paint with sound. Broad strokes of light, airy pastels that make you lean back and contemplate the space, defined by darker, urgent, quicksilver accents that make you lean in to pay attention to detail."


You can also purchase the download only for $5, with all the proceeds to ArtsCan Circle. For the digital download, go to
