Join Thinking Rock Community Arts for a public launch celebration of our collaborative Youth Mural Project!

During five summertime Zoom sessions, Youth from the Algoma District and beyond have met to share their stories, (re)imagine the future of their communities, and co-design a woven fence mural to amplify these messages.

Everyone is welcome to join us Saturday, October 23rd from 1 pm to 3:30 pm as we celebrate the achievements of these Youth artists with a public launch of the mural inspired by their designs and discussions!

All are welcome to attend the launch and to take part in hands-on artmaking activities inspired by our Social Fabric community arts project. Stay tuned for announcements about special guests!

Want to take part but can't attend our celebration? Email us at [email protected] or call us at (705) 542-1100 for more ways to get involved!


Thinking Rock Community Arts

Based in Thessalon, Algoma District, Northern Ontario, Thinking Rock creates art with and for the people living along the North Shore of Lake Huron, from Genaabaajing (Serpent River First Nation) to Baawating (Sault Ste. Marie) and all points in between. Through our free, multidisciplinary artistic programming we invite people of all Nations, ages, abilities, backgrounds and identities to join us in playing, making and dreaming about this special place we call home – as it was, as it is, and as it might be.

Our artistic team represents professional established and emerging rural artists of Indigenous, Settler and Newcomer descent who share a burning desire to explore how we can together begin to create spaces for dialogue and mutual understanding through multidisciplinary, multi-generational, cross-cultural community-engaged art projects.
