“Be Alive in Peterborough” Community Mural Project


Seeking Peterborough Volunteers to create a community mural artwork

The purpose of constructing this mural is to show the public that Peterborough is a vibrant “community” and it’s in its diverse members that the city is ALIVE.

What You Will Be Painting
The mural will show a “honeycomb” with bees and bugs throughout. The volunteers will have the opportunity to paint a simple symbol, picture showing “life”, such as plants or animals and other interests depicting the vibrancy within our community. Mural leaders will be onsite assisting and helping the volunteers be successful with their painting creations. Each volunteer will take creative ownership of 1 circle of approximately 50cm diameter within a hexagon cell, approx 2 hours to commitment to complete.

A variety of images will be provided for volunteers to use for inspiration but please feel free to bring your own sketch (colouring book outline). Your sketch will be approved by the mural leaders before getting the go ahead to paint! Remember to make designs easily visible from a distance and not highly detailed.
