The Art Bikers program for this summer has now ended. We had a great summer meeting lots of new people and epxloring new communities. Thanks to everyone who welcomed us so warmly and to all the children and others who "got creative" with us. Lots of great photos on our Facebook page or blog to check out. Be sure to visit. Thank you to all our community supporters and special thanks to the Art Bikers staff: Jyelle Vogel, Merle Harley, Eric Diolola, Evan Cameron and Wil Brask. Well done!
As of March 2015, because of changes to the HRM Community Arts program, 4Cs has suspended its grant program for Neighbourhood Intersection Painting and Placemaking projects. All projects approved before this date will still receive their funding grant from 4Cs. For more information on the changes to the HRM Community Arts program contact the Halifax Recreation Manager.
We love maps! And we love sharing what we've done with you. Visit these maps to learn about the community arts projects supported by the 4Cs Foundation since 1999 and all the communities visited by the Art Bikers since 2007. Both maps are works in progress and do not yet reflect our full history. We're working on it - but twe couldn't wait to share!
