It includes the collection of content from online archives, google street view, shared photographs, found images, and visualization of personal stories. The work crystallizes this content to incorporate multiple time periods and experiences of the art centre into a singular sculpture filled with light. For more information, visit:

With arts, culture and heritage being of such importance to our city's livability, we have developed our culture plan with the core vision to: break down barriers to cultural activities and engagement at the city and within the community; identify opportunities and bring ideas, people, and resources together to help make great things happen; encourage creativity and creative expression in all areas of community life. Go out and explore arts, culture, and heritage in Waterloo!
