Sunnyside neighbours collaborated to paint a rainbow under the arch in the LRT bridge, on the north side of Sunnyside Heights between 9A Street and 10A Street N.W. We brought the community together for an engaging day of painting! With everyone’s help, we were able to create an impactful and lasting piece of art in the community!
The Liveable Streets division connected us with the appropriate folks at Calgary Transit so we could obtain a LRT Right-Of-Way Work Permit from the Transit department. We were also connected to the public art program coordinator to give us a recommendation on paint application. Approximately 20 people participated in the project initially, but many more people have passed under the rainbow bridge since it has been completed. We were able to complete this project using the $1500.00 we received from the Activate YYC microgrant.
