Presented by: Jacob’s Well
Jacob’s Well, in collaboration with Mission Possible and Servants, facilitated the creation of a large outdoor mural on the wall space of the Mikado Martial Arts Supplies Building at 701 East Hastings St. The intent of the project was to encourage community participation, beautify the neighbourhood, create employment, discover leaders within the community and guide them in leading volunteers to carry out the project. The design process was led by artists Jenny Hawkinson and Cara Bain and was largely determined through community workshops at Jacob’s Well. The beautifully finished mural depicts cherry blossoms transforming into birds flying toward a nest.
