Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Mosaic the City is a spirit, an initiative and an organization
that fosters the creation of neighbourhood "community
unity" mosaic art projects. Each project brings people
together to learn about each other while sharing in the creation
of unique mosaic art pieces. Each project is community inspired,
community designed and community built by the people who live,
work, learn or shop in a neighbourhood.
Mosaic the City is an initiative that grew from the inspiration
of the mosaicist Shylene Schlackl. During the spring and summer
of 2003, Shylene was joined by a group of community organisers
and citizens to create the Mosaic the City organization based
in Victoria, British Columbia. Since then two projects have
been completed: Mosaic the Market 2003 and Central Middle
School's Community Unity Project 2004.
The to date uncompleted mosaic in this exhibit is a combination
of efforts made by all the leaders of past MtC projects. Each
of the first five projects will add their creative flair to
this piece and it will then become the official MtC Mosaic
for the Victoria chapter of the initiative.
