Basketball Court Mural
Co-created by 16 local youths
DAVID CROMBIE PARK, TORONTO
A group of sixteen youth from The Esplanade studied local and international murals, shared their values and ideas, consulted with the community, created a design, and spray-painted the basketball court wall to create the Crombie Park Basketball Court Mural.
The mural design process started in April 2014 and included reaching out to the community and encouraging all neighbours to share their own design suggestions to feed the creative process. The mural was unveiled on July 19th with performances by The Fairest and Best, and Rated X Dance Crew.
The mural has since gathered international recognition and has been featured in films, commercials, music videos and more!
Sixteen youth: Afnan, Ashlynn, Delina, Edan, Farid, Hanna,
Jennaiya, Karen, Molly, Mumina, Nada, Noel, Raecheal, Tyson,
Yasmin and Yossef.
