chART at Marpole Community Day!

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us during the Marpole Oakridge Community Centre’s Marpole Community Day on June 4!

This year, we were working on We Are Here, a creative community mapping project by artists Simeng Wang, Cheryl Lee, Xian Liu, and Ashley Guindon. This project consists of three mapping projects:

Street Mural Map: Based on a street and topographic map of Marpole, it spans 68th St. at Granville


Stitched Map: Created by the community, for the community, it features stitched patches marking places in the community with historical, personal, cultural, or environmental significance.


Paper Map: Using the community stories and suggestions gathered at community events like Marpole Community Day, the artists will create a paper map with the suggested locations. Anyone will be able to use this handy version of the stitched map to discover their neighbourhood in a new, exciting way!

Thanks to everyone who contributed a patch/story to our stitched map! We look forward to gathering more suggestions at future Marpole events.
