Paint the Rails:
Conversations on colonization, reclamation and reconciliation through art.
The City of Edmonton chose Paint the Rails as one of its legacy projects for Canada’s 150th anniversary. The project is much more relevant this year as it is also the 140th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 6. Paint the Rails looks to integrate as many cultural communities as possible into the greater story of settlement and reconciliation in Edmonton.
We have finished 2 impactful murals at Churchill station and University station along with extensive community consultations. We need financial support to make this project a reality, finishing the other murals, documenting and collecting our local history in a legacy children's book, published in 2020.
