Central Frederick Neighbourhood Association is the proud recipient of a Region of Waterloo Arts Fund grant that will allow us to engage neighbours in public art projects to build inclusion. We have six projects planned through August 2018 that all focus on bringing resdents together as contributors, consumers, creators, and hosts.
Take a look at our planned projects:
Collective Art Exhibit
In November, 2017 our collective art exhibit went on tour for the Frederick Street Art Walk. Thirteen residents, ranging in age from 4- 64 participated in the exhibit that hung on the art house building on the corner of Brubacher and Samuel. An estimate of 1500 people were witness to the exhibit.
Put A Bird On It
For this pop up project (which happened in March 2018), neighbourhood artists Wendy Newberry and Rachel Tanner worked with almost 80 community members to glaze, paint and collaging over 200 wood and ceramic birds. The birds will be hung around the neighbourhood for people to find and enjoy.
Birdhouse Art Jam
Our Birdhouse Art Jam, hosted by artist Jennifer Gordon is happening on April 20th, 2018 from 6:30- 8:30 pm at the Downtown Community Centre. The 48 birdhouses painted during this art jam will be used to create an art installation on the side of the shed in Weber Park.
This event is being organized by artist and photographer Wendy Cotter and will be a great place to meet other community photography enthusiasts. The event includes a photography crawl around Central Frederick and the opportunity to take part in a community photography exhibit based on the photos taken during the crawl. No experience required but all participants must have a camera (smartphones qualify). Please meet at 93 Chestnut street for 9 am.
Space for this event is limited so please contact email@example.com to secure your spot.
