Join the celebration and launch of the murals created as part of the Street Art Program for Youth on Thursday, October 19th, 5 - 7 p.m. at Weeds Cafe (1903 20 Ave NW). During this event, Artist AJA Louden will present an overview of the program, followed by a walking tour of the murals, located in the pathway tunnels in Confederation Park at 14th and 10th Street N.W.

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 twelve-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

Alberta artist AJA Louden is the program lead and lead artist for the 2017 program. AJA is a Calgary-born muralist who runs the Aerosol Academy program across Alberta.
