Community Placemaking

This summer, the ROC is working in conjunction with HRM on a Placemaking project!

We will install an outdoor movie screen on the back of our gymnasium, with a mural frame that will be created by local artist Charmaine Guthrie, based on input and ideas from you! We’ve already had some great feedback from the youth at Brookside Junior Hight, but would love to visit with organizations who are holding regular meetings this month to share more details about the project and get some input.

We also have lots of opportunity for you to get involved! We need organizers, building expertise, folks who can help source out donations for the project and for our Paint Day, which will be a community celebration in early September when we’ll get the mural painted on the frame.

If you’re hosting a meeting, and would like someone from the project team to come and speak about this great community project, contact and we’ll get you connected.
