‘Make It’ is a therapeutic art program run from Drive Youth Employment Services (a satellite of Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House) for youth aged 15-30 living with disabilities including mental health challenges. The program consists of weekly therapeutic art groups and community mural projects, where youth can create art in a supportive environment.
‘Make It’ is hiring a mural artist to create a community healing mural on Commercial Drive! The goal is to create a mural that helps to inspire hope and create an opportunity for healing through community art. The mural will be a legacy to community members who are no longer with us, while the process of creating it will unite Indigenous and other residents, Frog Hollow youth participants, local artists, and community members.
The Mural Artist works alongside the ‘Make It’ Program Coordinator to facilitate the planning, designs, and painting of the mural, as well as mentorship of youth in the ‘Make It’ program throughout the project. This contract position is working mostly daytime hours during the mural painting and community engagement portion of the project. The Mural Artist reports to the Make It Coordinator.
Our work is centered around inclusion and equity, to build social connection and to break down discrimination through community building. We strongly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), individuals with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
