MLA Students Take On City of Guelph Wilson Street Promenade Initiative
This one-day event, which will take place in conjunction with the City of Guelph’s John Galt Day festivities on August 1st, 2015, will allow visitors to envision the possibilities and potential this neglected street has to offer. The pilot project will consist of a small beach, park, farmers’ market and various activities for all visitors, while featuring artistic images created by artist displayed along the surrounding retaining walls. The event will also allow residents to participate by leaving their own drawings and comments on blank canvases provided throughout the site.
MLA student's Calen Hamelin and Cyrille Viola heading this initiative are in the coordination and planning stages, and have begun soliciting funds from potential sponsors. They have created a funding page at gofundme to help with collecting donations. Any amount of contribution will help for their proposal.
