Dawn Saunders Dahl

Public Art Program Officer
Edmonton Arts Council

Dawn will be speaking about graffiti and the OPEN SOURCE STREET ART PILOT PROJECT.

The Open Source Street Art Pilot program is a two-year street art pilot, developed by the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Arts Council. It will allow local artists to legally practise their street art in designated locations without fear of criminal prosecution. Considered to be evolving community works of art, the street art walls will continually change as street artists and the general public paint and repaint the surfaces.  This presentation includes the history of graffiti starting with cave painting to street art today as well as examples of different forms of graffiti and street art from around the world.

Location: Laurier Heights Baptist Church
8505  142 Street (Basement)
Edmonton, AB   T5R 0M2

See you all there!
