M’akola Housing Society played a big part in #housingcentral, sharing their process and a number of projects. We are very inspired by this mural project on the Hope Centre in Sooke, by artists Natassia Davies, T’Sou-ke Nation, Dahlila Charlie, Beecher Bay First Nation, Nicole Neidhardt, Navajo Nation, Jesse Campbell, Metis.
Titled “Coming Home”, the mural illustrates a shift from some of the disjointed elements of contemporary society to a journey home to culture and heritage.
“Hope Centre is a mixed-used housing, education, training, support and social service/thrift store building designed to provide layers of complementary support to the homeless and homeless-at-risk youth populations of the community of Sooke, with a focus on Aboriginal persons.”
Kudos to all that made these projects happen!
