CANADIAN PRIDE, HARMONY IN CULTURES

Canada’s 150th Confederation Anniversary official project

This mural depicts a mosaic of fabrics from around the world in reverence to the flow of cultures in Canada and our common values of peace and freedom.
It was inspired by our diversity and created by more than forty volunteers from all over the world that believe in inclusion and co-creation. We worked together for more that four months and learned that our many differences made us a powerful and rich community.

The water "Coast to Coast" represent Mother Nature and how grateful we are for the natural
resources, pristine air and peaceful environment Canada offer to us every day.
The big piece at the right of the whale big circle represents Aboriginal Canadian Cultures and their relationship with Mother Nature. It is divided in three aboriginal or aboriginal inspired images that represent from left to right: the aboriginal cultures from the Pacific coast, the aboriginal cultures from the Arctic and all aboriginal cultures from central Canada to the Atlantic Coast including Algonquin Culture. Metis and French-Canadian cultures are represented with their sash in the piece at the upper right corner of the mural.
This mural was inspired by our diversity and created by more than forty volunteers from all over the world that believe in inclusion and co-creation. We worked together for more that four months and learned that our many differences made us
a powerful and rich community.
