Hello everyone! The much-anticipated Blessing Ceremony for Phase III of the Unity Wall mural will be happening next Tuesday, June 24 at Ogden Point from 1:00 to 2:00. If you want to catch up on the mural creation process from last summer, check out the Unity Wall's YouTube channel for painter profiles and process videos. If you want to know more about the theme of phase III, watch the Unity Wall's Theme feature, produced by Cormorant Pictures.
Over the summer, Greater Victoria Harbour Authority reached out to local elementary schools and invited classes down to Ogden Point to take a tour of the Unity Wall and the shop where the panels were being painted. This video, produced by Cormorant Pictures, shows us what became of those tours.
In the most moving video Cormorant Pictures has produced for the #UnityWall to date, a number of voices speak toward the Douglas Treaties and the changes it brought, the feelings it continues to evoke, as well as the challenges Butch and Darlene faced of depicting this complex relationship through their artwork for Phase III. Take 7 minutes of your time to watch this video and please share with your friends to pass along this message—it's one that should not be forgotten. #yyj #FirstNations #mural #DouglasTreaties #VictoriaBC

This is happening! A few #UnityWall mural painters have stuck around to take on this project. They are covering the outer side of the breakwater with simplified designs from Phase I and incorporating the wolf heads from Phase III. Seeing as panels will take a harsh beating on the outside of the wall, spray paint and stencils are being used so it will be easy to maintain the designs. Come check out their progress, they're usually around on sunny days! Photo courtesy Dean Kalyan Photography #yyj #VictoriaBC #mural #FirstNations #art #OgdenPoint
