Youth Employment

Teams of young artists-in-training, mostly aboriginal youths, were employed for each phase of the mural. In addition to transferring the original designs of their artist mentors to panels, each created one image for inclusion in the mural. A new team of youth was hired and mentored in each phase of the project. Through shared vision, artistic collaboration and dedication, the Unity Wall project allowed the youth to learn a skill and encouraged the reclamation of knowledge and pride in First Nations culture and in themselves.
