Youths to work with art and community

The work created in the first phase of the project will be exhibited on a prominent downtown wall.

Art on the Wall is a community initiative project that invites applications from youth aged 15 to 24 interested in art and community.

Ten youth will work as a team under the mentorship of Anh Le (curator and visual artist) and selected experienced mural artists to create an initial mural based on the theme of Diversity.

The work created in the first phase of the project will be exhibited on a prominent downtown wall. Several design plans will be presented to community partners for installation at up to three other locations through the summer.

The in-class component of the project runs for seven Saturdays — from April 13 to May 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Comox Valley Art Gallery. There will be installation dates set after design completion and approval.

To apply, e-mail to Dallas Stevenson at info@comoxvalleyarts.com by March 18 with one to three paragraphs explaining why you’re interested in the project, what type of experience you have and why diversity is important to you.

This project is presented by in partnership by the Comox Valley Art Gallery, Comox Valley Community Justice Centre, Elks’ Lodge, the City of Courtenay and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council. Funding support comes through the City of Courtenay, the Elks’ Lodge, BC Arts Council and Canada-EmbraceBC.

The diversity mural is part of a larger community initiative hosted by the Comox Valley Community Justice Centre — The Arts: Engaging Diversity.
