Lawrence heights Art Centre

Our group, resident-lead art collective, is based in Lawrence Heights and working on engaging community into projects around parks and green areas to bring awareness about nature and inspire creativity of local residents. As part of our program, we designed and built the Sunset Bench which became a focal point of the green recreational facilities serving LH seniors' residential area. A series of Art Kiosks have been designed and built by our Youth members in the green area of Lawrence Heights as another project inviting to explore and celebrate nature. We use these spaces for seasonal outdoor events such as Pumpkin carving contest and campfire potato-baking activities. This sites are maintained by our group to welcome various groups of residents to enjoy and educate about importance of nature in our life.
