Headed in the Right Direction

With the help of lots of volunteers, Mural Routes is making the Kingston Galloway/Orton Park bridge alive with colour, by painting designs across the entire stretch of the bridge. Youth volunteers have helped this project every step of the way; coming up with the ideas and designs, and stenciling these designs and painting them.

The painting on the bridge begins today, Monday July the 26th. I encourage you to go check out their hard work for yourself in person. What you'll see is an expression of the four seasons and passing of years through images of community and nature.

The project should be complete in time for the Subtext Festival but you don't have to wait 'til then to get involved. You can fill out a form and voluntarily become a regular painter. You can also grab a Bridging Project pamphlet and share your stories about the bridge. Surely as we get closer and closer to the big weekend, there will be more and more to get involved in.
