Diversity Mural

Completed: 6 July 2023

The Berwick Mural Society proudly announced Halifax artist Ibe Ananaba as the winner of their 2023 mural competition. The 2023 theme is diversity and the large-scale mural will be featured on the expansive south wall of the Shur-Gain Feeds’n Needs building located at 229 Commercial Street. The start date of the mural was Tuesday, June 20th, and was completed on the 6th of July, 2023.

In Ananaba’s own words, the Diversity Mural is “To honour Berwick’s soul and legacy as a diverse and inclusive community, I plan to celebrate the multi-racial uniqueness of the town through a vibrant and heartwarming visual story that portrays the growing diversity of the town’s cultural identity. Through bonding amongst different ethnicities and expression of contemporary communal living, regardless of age, status, or belief, this mural will reflect Berwick’s warmth and welcoming nature and uphold her pride as Nova Scotia’s apple capital.”

Asked about the inspiration behind the Berwick Mural Society, Board President Greg Hubbert explained, “Mural art is available and accessible for all to see and enjoy as it adds to the beautification of our town. It also helps to create a sense of pride in who we are as a small town and what we see as our future direction.”
