Street Art Program for Youth

The Street Art Program for Youth is designed to provide a hands-on experience to youth who are interested in street art. Guided by a professional lead artist, the program allows up to 14 youth aged 12 to 17 to participate in a 5-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

The Street Art Program for Youth creates a strong sense of community amongst youth interested in the practice of street art while inspiring them with professional street artists & mentors. The youth who participate in this program work with a lead artist to design, develop and install a large-scale street art mural in the city that they can be proud to call their own.

For information about this program, please contact publicart@calgary.ca .

Our Window

Our Window was created by AJA Louden and the participants of the City of Calgary's Street Art Program for Youth in 2018. Our Window combines patterns designed by youth, community members, and lead artist AJA Louden. This concept was inspired by the seeds that are planted when we exchange ideas and inspiration openly. Often our communities grow stronger thanks to unexpected connections. This mural can be activated through Augmented Reality by downloading an app accessible by QR code on the mural.

The app was created by AZMA Digital, and features digital animations by Jarett Sitter and Stop-Motion animations by The Bum Family.
