Summary

As shown in Portland, Ottawa, and Minneapolis, painted street murals tell a story of how our communities can become stronger by changing our streets into vehicles for lasting neighbourly connections and expressions of community-held values.

The Street Art project aims to connect neighbours and reimagine public space through collaborative community-made art. Through the process of designing and painting an on-street mural, residents have the opportunity to form connections with neighbours and create a sense of collective community ownership and pride. Street Art imagines neighbourhoods where people feel a sense of place and connection and are able to overcome the challenges of social isolation through art.
