The Unique Together Community Mosaic Mural

In the Spring of 2010, members of the public made tiles for the Mural at Waterloo Public Square, at the Kitchener Market and in UpTown Gallery. The final tiles were created by a Grade 3 class at Westvale Public School. The Mural was displayed in UpTown Gallery in the Summer of 2010. The project was part of the Animate the Streets arts event that received funding from the Waterloo Region Arts Fund.

This project it is a metaphor for a community of interconnected unique individuals. Each tile is unique and its design interconnects with the tiles around it. Participants were given a simple template, marker and paper to make a tile for the mural.

The mural was conceived by Nicole Waddick and was inspired by the ancient Japanese geometric pattern design called karakusa.
