Community Mural: Colours of Our Voice

  • “Colours of our Voice” is an intergenerational, co-created mural that symbolizes unity, diversity, community and resiliency.
  • This project brought  youth and seniors from Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park together to create a public artwork that inspires resiliency from May to July 2019.
  • Funded through a Resilience Builder Grant from the Toronto Foundation, supporting partners include TNO – The Neighbourhood Organization (coordination), the STEPS Initiative (art) and the East York Town Centre (space).
  • This project has created new opportunities for shared learning among community members and built new relationships which will contribute to not only stronger social connections, but also a more resilient and vibrant community.
  • The mural is located at the East York Town Centre (45 Overlea Blvd., Toronto, ON M4H 1C3), near Dollarama.
