The Aurora Cultural Centre proudly welcomes our Community Arts Facilitator, Ted Hamer! As a professional muralist, multi-disciplinary artist and educator, Ted will be leading us through our community arts project – Canada150 Milestone Murals.
This special project, funded through the Government of Canada’s Canada150 Granting Program, is an opportunity for collaborative creativity with the result being an outdoor art installation. Ted will guide public workshops to generate the art piece.
We encourage you to join us in these arts experiences to share and create. Your contributions through these workshops will help develop and complete this legacy piece – you may even get to put paint to board! We look forward to celebrating the installations’ unveiling with a fall event.
