CANADA DAY’18  CELEBRATION                                                                                           AGC 
Community Art project –                                                                                        R.V.Burgess Park- Thorncliffe Community

Quebecois singer songwriter, Gilles Vigneault, once said-
“Mon Pays, c’est ne pas un pays, c’est l’hivers…”
To paraphrase- “My Canada, it is not (only) a country, it’s winter…”
What thing or idea                                                              most means “Canada” to us ?  

So… Maybe  your  Canada  is …
·      Comfort  ?
·      Safety  ?
·      Community ?
·      Hockey  ?
·      Home   ?
·      Music   ?
·      Forest   ?
·      Bus rides  ?
·      Or  ?
Let’s build what “Canada isthrough expressing and sharing what we think and feel.
Let’s show what “Canada is..” by creating an original picture with words and images.

Here’s your chance …
get started with a canvas and your own idea !
Join us in the park on Canada Day !
