Start your summer with the CVYC Mural Project. We invite youth ages 14-24 to collaboratively produce a community mural at the Yates St. Community Garden. Participants will be supported by Indigenous Artist in Residence at the City of Victoria, Lindsay Delaronde to develop a vision and execute the mural. The CVYC Mural Project runs every Saturday from May 27th to June 24th.
Participants who complete the mural and attend all five sessions will receive a $100 honorarium upon completion.
Youth with all levels of artistic skill and experience are invited to register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited.
Lindsay Delaronde is an Iroquois Mohawk woman born and raised on the Kahnawake reservation outside of Montreal, is also a multi‐disciplinary Visual Arts MFA alumna (2010) and has been a professional practicing artist for the past five years. Her work was in the spotlight with her 2016-17 exhibit In Defiance at UVic’s Legacy Gallery. “I hope to create artworks that reflect the values of this land, which are cultivated and nurtured by the Indigenous peoples of this territory,” said artist Lindsay Delaronde. “I see my role as a way to bring awareness to and acknowledge that reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples is a process, one in which I can facilitate a collaborative approach to creating strong relationships to produce co-created art projects in Victoria.”
