Scarborough Seniors Mosaic Mural Project

Artist: Cristina Delago

4630 Kingston Rd, Scarborough, ON, Canada

Thanks to a Government of Ontario Seniors Community grant, 27 Older Adults (55+) and Seniors (65+) living in Scarborough developed mural-making skills with experienced mosaic mural artist Cristina Delago. As part of the program, delivered virtually, each participant created a mosaic panel to contribute to this large community mural project on the theme of gratitude. During the unprecedented times of Covid-19 lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, participants shared what they were grateful for throughout the workshops. Using the time together to heal and bond through the creative process of mosaic-making, those involved in the workshops developed a sense of community and felt very connected in a time of physical isolation.
