My Response to the Mural Theme of Naturally Resilient:
I feel that womxn and trees (tree of life) are naturally resilient and persevere through
hardships (pollution, climate change, disrespect, extinction, blatant disregard, etc.) with a potent resiliency; continuing to strive for a better tomorrow. It is only natural to have a womxn represent Mother Nature – a hub for growth, which in turn allows others to thrive.
Womxn Paint hosted their third mural jam July 12th — 14th, 2019 in North Etobicoke as part of a Signature project of the Cultural Hotspot produced in partnership with the City of Toronto, StreetARToronto (StART) and supported by Toronto Pearson International Airport.
The mural is located on the northern retaining wall along Finch Ave W between Kipling Ave and Islington Ave.
This year’s murals will visually share authentic stories that celebrate building strength, connection and community through developing our relationship with the natural world.
