Call on District Six community to participate in Chapel Street Mural Art workshop <p>'One of the projects that has been identified in collaboration with the District Six caretakers is the upgrade of Chapel Street to facilitate movement between Trafalgar Park, New Hanover Street and the CBD. Chapel Street is strategically located to unite the existing District Six on the eastern side of the elevated freeway with the recently returned community on the western side of the freeway. Chapel Street has the potential to highlight character and identity in the area, and that is our objective with this art mural project. We would appreciate all the insightful contributions from residents so the mural artwork can depict the true essence of District Six while encapsulating the vision the community has for their collective future,' said the City's Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews.</p><p><strong>Art Workshop 1 details are as follows:</strong></p><ul><li>Date: 16 September 2023</li><li>Time: 13:30 to 17:30</li><li>Venue: Lydia Centre For Memory (Corner of Chapel & St Phillips Street)</li></ul><p><strong>Activities planned for the art workshop include:</strong></p><ul><li>Storytelling and developing themes for artwork in Chapel Street</li><li>Developing the criteria by which prospective artists will be measured </li><li>Deciding on a panel that will select artworks/artists in the next workshop </li></ul><p>The outcomes of the workshop will be facilitated in the preparation of the content and the artist will receive detailed feedback.
