Thanks for the helping hand

Local businesses and organizations helped fund the urban art project at the Quesnel skatepark

Sponsors include

At the end of April, a member of the community, whose children used the skatepark, recognized the skatepark needed help visually and approached the Quesnel and District Community Arts Council to help secure sponsorship for upgrading. QDCAC applied to Community Futures sponsorship grant program and QDCAC president Colleen Brines said she was very impressed with the generosity of the donations from all the project sponsors. Once the project was on track for sponsorship Milan Basic, a Vancouver professional urban artist was contacted and as he was already booked to do a mural in Wells, he was happy to include the work at the Quesnel skatepark on his way to Wells. He plans to meet with the youth at the skatepark and together will determine the design from their conversations. The painting is slated to take place on Aug. 5 with as many as 20 local boarders participating
