Citizens are invited to attend and participate in a community-led street painting and neighbourhood placemaking celebration Saturday, Sept. 9 (weather permitting), 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the corner of Dublin and Summit streets in Halifax. The rain date will be Sept. 16.
Members of the community will unite to paint a beautiful design at the intersection, in addition to other activities and celebrations throughout the day.
Motorists are advised that Dublin (from Vienna to Seaforth streets) and Summit streets (from Oxford to Windsor streets) will be closed to vehicle traffic from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday to accommodate this event.
This placemaking project aims to beautify the streets, inspire closer connections between neighbours, and bring a sense of safety through a more connected community. It is supported by the municipal Neighbourhood Placemaking Program and funded through a grant from the Province of Nova Scotia’s Community, Culture and Heritage program. The community worked with artist Ivan Murphy, to help interpret the community’s vision through the painting’s design.
