Calling all Artists!

The Town is seeking proposals for a qualified professional artist to lead a collaborative mural project with local youth in Ladysmith and Stz’uminus that in addition to creating “connection”, will enhance the aesthetics of the existing wall on the street front at Frank Jameson Community Centre.

Mural projects attract young people of all ages. This is a youth engagement project - creating community through the arts connecting youth to their peers, local artists and community members. Collaborative mural projects encourage group bonding, foster community identity and help create a sense of community purpose and pride. Through this process, youth find a positive way to express themselves, they feel more connected to their communities and their peers, and they gain real-world skills.

Murals have the potential to make powerful statements that express the values of a community, involve a diverse group of participants, and enhance a public space.

Check back often for updates on the project!
