Multicultural Mural 2009 - Our Home in the City

Sky Richard: "This mural is part of an initiative arranged by members of EPPIS (the Early Psychosis Prevention & Intervention Service) and PFSS (Pregnant Family Support Services). With a radio promotion offering a volunteer mural, EPPIS was able to gather the support of PFSS. "

"Artists and volunteers worked together to design and complete multicultural images focusing on families and communities. Original artwork by the participants is fused with inspirations from other multicultural artist renderings."

"The painting now brightens up an area that had long been a target of vandalism and refuse. It receives many encouraging reviews from residents of the community. A clearcoating is planned for the finale. It's scheduled to be unveiled during the annual Spence Neighborhood street festival in 2009."

"Thanks to all of the participants and the Murals of Winnipeg team for all its appreciation."
