Milestone Murals for Canada150

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.

What is the Canada150 Fund?

The Government of Canada created the Canada 150 Fund so that all Canadians can take part. The Fund is administrated by the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH). Funding was made available in the forms of grants or contributions for projects that support the objective to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Applicants to the fund were encouraged to design and propose projects that encourage active participation and bring Canadians together to mark and celebrate our diversity in inclusive ways and to help shape Canada for the future.
