The City of Fort St. John is seeking input from local community members and groups to help develop the Canada 150 Mosaic project.
The City’s involvement in the project will create a time capsule to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday – in what is being called a ‘visual storyboard.’
“This is an extraordinary opportunity for Fort St. John to be only one of a handful of BC communities selected to participate in this project is an honour,” said Mayor Lori Ackerman. “We are delighted to showcase our community to the Country for Canada’s 150th birthday.”
The work will feature all the 13 provinces and territories and the work of thousands of Canadian participants. Anywhere from 5 to 15 communities to a province/territory will create sections of the overall mural.
Each participating city or town will create a section of the mural that symbolizes their community, resulting in 750 individual tiles painted by local citizens.
Interested participants are invited to an information session on Monday, November 30th, from noon until 1:00 PM at the Pomeroy Sports Centre’s west meeting room.
This session will provide information on how this project will look, as well as how the community can be involved and participate in this new and exciting project.
Lunch will not be provided for this session.
