Options Bytown: Building Strong Communities and How!
Feel a need to express who you are while creating beauty in your neighbourhood; here is how some members of our community managed to do just that!
The Options Bytown Resource Centre at Heather Manor in south Ottawa with the assistance of an Ottawa Community Housing Community Capital Fund enlisted the help of tenants to bring their own distinctive style of art to their community by creating a public mural. The tenants worked with a local artist to express how they felt as a diverse community celebrating their unique cultures in the cultural mosaic of Ottawa.
This collaboration between artist and tenants took 10 weeks in total to complete. When completed the message was loud and clear as you can unmistakably see on the mural. Through Peace and Love we create Unity.
The reveal took place at a community celebration on December 14th, 2015
