An Art City mural goes up in the West Broadway area. Art City is mentoring the North End Arts Centre.
About the North End Arts Centre:
To inspire the creativity of youth and community, a neighbourhood arts centre will be created at a Selkirk Avenue location in the North End of Winnipeg. WCCC 2010, along with organizational partner Ndinawe, (a community development organization) will invite hundreds of young people in the area to enter into arts activities, and to generate sense of community responsibility that arts involvement can stimulate. The encouragement of creative skills inspires both pride and wonder in young people, creating confidence in both themselves and their community. The incredible things that can happen when creativity takes place are well documented by arts centre predecessors such as Art City, whose staff will mentor the project. A key component of the pilot project is to establish its sustainability into the future so that these programs can continue to evolve and serve the community.
