In October 2014, the Youth Advisory Board (YAB) for Our Shared Commitment was established thanks to a Provincial Safer and Vital Communities Grant. Technology, nutrition, literacy, arts and music are key themes in this program which involve local families and young children collaborating with local professionals within the community.

YAB has decided that they will be completing a Community Art Project that will allow all members of the community to be part of a larger puzzle that will showcase North Hastings’ artistic talent. The Youth would like the final project to be placed within the Community in a location so that all can enjoy it.  

Each puzzle piece is 7 ½ inch square and their goal is to have at least 100 pieces completed.

This would make the final Art Piece approximately 6 ½ feet square. However depending on the community support and the possibility of the project growing with partnership and increased funding, the final piece could be larger.

 The North Hastings Children’s Services (NHCS) need partners in the Art Community for this project, specifically artists who would be able to teach and share their skills with the YAB. An honorarium is available to the artist volunteers for their facilitation skills and participation.

 This project has a planned event date of February 14, 2015, set to coincide with events (Think Snow Weekend) planned by the Town of Bancroft for that date. For that reason, NHCS would like volunteering Artists to meet with and teach the youth prior to February 7, 2015.

 For further information, please contact Sarah Phoenix, Our Shared Commitment Coordinator at 613.332.0179, or by email at sphoenix@nhcs.ca.
