Intersection Painting :: July 14th

“PUBLIC SPACES are our COMPASS for political action, the anchoring element through which citizens feel free to build community and promote social inclusion.” – Enabling City

INTERSECTIONS CAN BE A PLACE TO SLOW down, LINGER & CONNECT.

Through cooperative process of re-inventing and re-invigorating a common space we build the fabric of community. Over the course of many months we have been going door to door, and hosting sessions at the seniors home, schools, and community centres to listen to stories, unearth what is possible, and design the painting.  On July 14th as we come together to paint a representation of our neighbourhood we reclaim not only the physical realm but the belief that we can build and transform.

Here it is, the final community designed painting for  our nieghbourhood intersection.  Click on the picture to view it larger.
