Mural Art Project available to TLDSB Grade 11 and 12 students

The following three organizations; The Kawartha Art Gallery, A Place Called Home, and the United Way City of Kawartha Lakes – United Women, recently partnered to launch a special unhoused awareness community project.

The initiative is a mural art contest open to Trillium Lakelands District School Board Grade 11 and 12 students in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. Interested students are invited to tell a story through the media of visual art, depicting the following questions:

  • How has housing and homelessness impacted you and your community?
  • What does an inclusive, safe, connected, and sustainable community where all thrive look like?
  • How does housing impact mental health and addictions?
  • How does poverty impact housing?
  • How does housing impact a community and what you think can be done?

The chosen artist will work with an artist mentor to plan, prepare, and paint the selected submission onto a wall within the A Place Called Home facility.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Wednesday, May 31.
