The idea behind not only the show, but also overall project is to hopefully inspire people to think about their first skateboard and what it meant to them. For many skaters, this still represents a pivotal moment in their lives, with every last detail, fresh in their minds.
Bringing together contemporary artists both in, and affected by the skateboard industry to help raise funds to go towards the first goal of Contributor which was to donate 100 skateboards to disadvantaged youth across Canada in 2009/2010. The show toured across Canada with 5 stops in major cities and culminated with an online auction in September 2009.
