#YourCanada Street Art Project

#YourCanada Street Art Project


The Canadian Encyclopedia is looking for intrepid urban explorers to document and share the beautiful murals and street art that span the country from sea to sea to sea. We’re creating a “street art-chive” on the Your Canada map, so you can experience the vibrancy of Canadian communities even if you can’t do that cross-country road trip this summer.

Do you walk past a beautiful piece of street art every day? Add it to the map! We’re giving away a Heritage Minutes prize pack to the ten most shared submissions, so tell your friends!

Prize Pack Awarded to 10 Most Shared Submissions by 31 August 2015:

Heritage Minutes DVD

Heritage Minutes Poster 1

Heritage Minutes Button Pack
