Community Chalk Art Day: What would YOU like your community to look like?The CVYC recently hosted a casual community consultation in a public space, in a creative and fun way! Held by the fountain in Centennial Square, this event invited youth in the city and passer-bys to answer the following question: "What would YOU like your community to look like?" through chalk doodles, drawings, poems, stories and words around the Centennial Square fountain. A few dozen people contributed to the illustrations and words that snaked around the fountain, and a fun time was had by all! - Dec 20th, 2012
