Last year I recevied a small grant from Kits Neighbourhood House to create a community art project — Community Mandala Day! This year, another mandala will be created with the seed intention being Unity.
I am really excited to host another art in the park event and I can't wait to see the process of painting another large colourful mandala. Stay tuned for updates on collaborations for the day event!
Community Mandala Day will be at Hastings Mill Park right next to Jericho Beach.
*Paints & brushes will be supplied.
Bring yourself, friends, family, sun protection, water, snacks
The intention of this project is to gather community and create an artwork with a common intention. Art has the power to allow self-expression and collective expression. Art also tells stories, creates new stories and is an essential element of being alive together. To be creative with out any judgments from oneself, from others and to create beauty filled with soul is the aim of this year's mandala. A mandala is a symbolic circle that can represent sacred traditions, personal intentions, and in our case, a collective intention — Unity.
Thanks so much to Vancouver Foundation & Kits House!
