Street Art Program for Youth

City of Calgary

The City of Calgary Public Art Program is presenting a community engagement session on Thursday, May 18th at the Rosemont Community Centre to discuss plans for the upcoming Street Art Program for Youth murals.

The Street Art Program for Youth is designed to provide a hands-on experience to youth who are interested in street art. Guided by a professional lead artist, the program allows up to 14 youth aged 12 to 17 to participate in a twelve-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

Alberta artist AJA Louden is the program lead and lead artist for the 2017 program. AJA is a Calgary-born muralist who runs the Aerosol Academy program across Alberta.

In 2017, the murals will be created on-site at the pathway tunnels located in Confederation Park. A celebration with youth and community will take place in late August, with the exact date to be announced in July.
