MISSION CAPSULE: Working in partnership with Prairie Presbyterian Church, Winnipeg Inner City Missions has started a new arts ministry that celebrates Indigenous culture and art. Over the next few months, volunteers and Indigenous artists will be offering art classes to children with an emphasis on graffiti art. The art produced by the children will be used, in part, to create a large mural covering three sides of the Flora House garage (A wicm Program Space.) The project will culminate in the spring with a weekend-long community event filled with games, activities, music, entertainment and food to celebrate and unveil the new mural.
