Mural themes

Canada is a mosaic that has been shaped by people of various ethnicities and cultures who have shared new languages, cultural practices, religions, culinary traditions and so much more. Diversity is our strongest asset as a country and as a municipality. Our collective differences have led to innovation, creativity and new ways of being and doing. Diversity and inclusion are fundamental characteristics of our society and yet we realize that more can be done to celebrate their ongoing importance to our communities.

This will be the first display of public art in our Town devoted to diversity and inclusion. The mural will boldly show the Town's commitment to diversity and inclusion and promote anti-racism and will include the following themes:

  • Celebrates the accomplishments of Canadians of various ethnicities and cultures who have contributed to the building of Canada and Aurora;
  • Highlights historically significant achievements made by diverse individuals from Canada’s past and present; and
  • Encourages education and learning around equity, diversity, inclusion, racism and systemic inequities.
