Diversity Dance Mural Contests & Giveaways

Location of the mural: 1226 Centre Street NE, north side of Papa John’s

There’s a colourful new mural in our Village that’s inviting our community to celebrate diversity through dance! Film yourself grooving to the beats of your playlist or throw it back to classics like the “YMCA”, the macarena, or gather your friends, family, and neighbours to form a conga line – we want to celebrate all styles of movement!

A Bit About the Mural:

This mural is designed and painted by Jamie Mason and Kevin Chow, the artists behind @rawryandpohly -the names of their childhood bears! Rawry & Pohly’s practice is centered on encouraging acts of play and reconnecting with one’s childhood through the lens of visual arts. As artists, R&P specialize in stylistic interpretations of modern pop art with elements of minimalism by utilizing mixed media. This mural, If You Can’t Fly, Dance!, pays tribute to Keith Haring’s ideology behind art, the meaningful impact he made for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, his work to destigmatize HIV/AIDS and his philanthropy towards hospitals, charities, and orphanages. 

Thank you @chcayyc, @calgfoundation, and the @crescentheightsvillage for making this mural possible!
