The 10 Blocks of Passion Street Gallery is arriving in Strathcona!
We’re excited to be featuring original artworks inspired by personal stories from our neighbourhood. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to create something meaningful and exciting right here in Strathcona.
We’re in search of artists to dream up and create art installations to be publicly displayed around the neighbourhood until summer’s end. But, we need your imagination to bring the streets to life!
