Last year we made the heart-breaking decision to cut down thirty four trees gracing the side of our building. For years their root system had been costing us thousands of dollars as they interfered with and were constantly becoming tangled in the plumbing beneath the building. The removal of the trees has left us with a great big space to fill, both in our hearts and on the newly exposed side of the building, so we are putting a call out to Artists to help us create a mural on the East facing wall of Port Moody Integrated Health building.
On July 24th, 2010 we held a visioning session and invited members of the Port Moody community to get together, brainstorm and share their ideas regarding the future of community, sustainability and wellness. It is from these shared ideas that we wish to build the body of the mural.
As an Artist, what can you envision and create that evokes hope and passion toward a positive future on the topics of community, sustainability and wellness? Our hope is for the mural to look as if it is exploding out of the wall, with bricks tumbling away; an idea whose time has come.
Interested Artists please submit:
a maximum one page write up discussing why this project interests you, containing your views of the future of Community, Sustainability and Wellness
