Our Stories

Completed: 2022

19 Indigenous artists between the ages of 9-55 created 19 murals in a series titled “Our Stories.” Positioned on the exterior wall of Scotia Square, each mural is unique and tells its own story. These murals were created over the span of five workshops.

The Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre received the Gritty to Pretty Placemaking grant from the Halifax Business Commission for this project. The murals were completed with support from Open Studio One planning + design.
