“Our committee’s goal is to raise awarness and to bring all culture loving residents together as one voice, expressing the need for a multi disciplinary art centre right here in Cornwall”, explains co-organizer and committee member Tracy Lynn Chisholm.
In addition to creating awareness, this event also gave local citizens a hands on opportunity to participate.
“This was our first big event and it was a blast! We pre sold tickets, yet we must say that it was so exciting to have people walking and biking by just stop, ask us what we were doing and then buy a tile and start painting”, says Ms. Chisholm.
“Seeing the smiles on all the children’s faces was really motivating, and a wonderful reminder that it’s our responsibility to take care of our future little artists we completed half the mural today, so this project is ‘to be continued’ in the near future, we will keep everyone posted as to where and when”.
The Center for the Art Collective is dedicated to building momentum, excitement and a bank account towards a multi-disciplinary arts center. As the city’s report on art and culture suggests, the Centre for the Arts might be a new building or a retrofit.
