The idea is simple: Street murals are a great way to slow down traffic, make the road safer and also to engage neighbours in a creative process to beautify the community and build stronger connections.
Inspired by the folks down at Intersection Repair, we’ve started a street mural project in our neighbourhood, Regal Heights. We’re hoping to paint our first community street mural during 2015, but for now we’re promoting the project and building local support with temporary chalk installations.
This weekend, we took over the intersection of Regal Road and Westmount Ave, in front of Regal Road Public School, and we created our first full-scale intersection mural.
If you’re interested in getting involved with the project, let me know!
