For the past year I have had the unique opportunity to facilitate a community-initiated project in Western Hill, St. Catharines, as Community Animator with the RAFT. It has been a privilege to work with residents, businesses, government and community partners to initiate and develop the Train Station Revitalization Project including a fabulous community mural project. The success of the project is a great example of what can be achieved when an idea for change comes from the ground up and is met by those with influence and resources. This is what can happen with true community collaboration:
Thank you to the St. Catharines Standard for helping us spread the word about this great community initiative. We look forward to seeing this work of art take shape.
