'The Road Less Travelled' 32nd St. Project

We are working on adding art and activation to 32nd Street SE in the interests of community safety and vibrancy

Community members submitted words meant to inspire the artist teams that will be involved with the revitalization project on 32nd Street SE in Calgary.

We have received funding to revitalize a block of 32nd Street SE in central-east Calgary. Guided by community members, we will be using art to make the street feel more welcoming, safe, and fun. The infographic below includes the analysis of data from our community engagement event this Summer.

Mural Artist Selection

Artist submissions for the road less travelled project is now under review.

Thank you to all the artist teams who have submitted applications,

we are in the process of reviewing them with community member input.
