Multi-faith and Spirituality Centre: Mural Project Call-Out!
The Multi-faith and Spirituality Center is looking for artist(s) to create a mural in our centre! We’re looking for a creative mural that responds to the question(s):
What does spiritual/religious diversity look like to you? Visualize what spirituality looks like to you in the context of community. It can be an abstract or concrete design.
The MFSC is a place of creating and supporting community. We find strength in religious/spiritual diversity; which includes people of religious faith, agnostics, atheists and people following their own spiritual paths. We want our front hallway to have a vibrancy and sense of inclusive welcoming to all students.
The wall mural will be painted along the staircase in the entrance hallway of the Z Annex at 2090 rue Mackay. The wall is triangular in shape, measuring 11ft x 8ft x 13ft; applicants are encouraged to visit the centre to see it in person.
