Mosaic the City Community Unity Society
~ A Community Development Programme ~
Mosaic the City, is a multi-year initiative that will ultimately
link the downtown core to other parts of the city via an art-lined
artery. Project by project, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, friendship
by friendship- creating Community Unity around this fine city.
Middle School's Community Unity Project 2004, in
Fernwood at the top of Fort and Yates Streets. This project brought
together the school with the local Fire Hall, Craigdarroch Castle,
Craigdarroch Care Home, the PAC, and Grace Lutheran Church. It was
with the Community Unity of these groups and over 100 other people
that designed and built the amazing 6 foot floor laid mosaic, for
Mosaic the City's second project.
summer of 2003 we held the first Community Unity project, Mosaic
the Market 2003, in Market Square. Together with our associate
partners, Out of Hand Gallery, Market Square, Rock Solid Foundation
and Metamend Software and Design we were able to build five mosaics
for the first project.
Each of these Mosaic the City projects is community designed
and community built, bringing together the people of the neighbourhood
to create art that will beautify their area of town. It will help
bring people with different backgrounds, values and cultures together
in a relaxed, creative and positive atmosphere.
