'The Road Less Travelled' 32nd St. Project
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
We are happy to announce the artist selected to transform 32nd Street into a welcoming and engaging area for all to enjoy is Paula Timm.
Paula is a visual artist, creative facilitator and community builder with a passion for sharing the connection between wellness and creative expression and we can't wait to see her completed vision!
