You Belong Bench Artist

Community

In September 2020, Crescent Heights Village participated in Calgary’s Park(ing) Day celebrations by inviting the community to come and paint some art benches in support of Calgary Pride. As September is Pride Month in Calgary, we worked with community leader Tyson Bankert to create a template using pride and trans pride colours in a mosaic format and set the community loose to paint the benches. 

We had a great time and some great conversations while making art and supporting a great cause!
