BGC Kawarthas unveils New Inclusion Mural at the BGC Warehouse

Published March 10, 2022 17:44

BGC Kawarthas is proud to unveil a new mural at the BGC Warehouse entrance which illustrates the Club’s core values: Belonging, Respect, Encouragement and Support, Working Together, and Speaking out.

“The mural immediately sets a welcoming tone as you enter the Warehouse, a space used for programming for youth aged 12 – 24,” says Amy Terrill, Executive Director. “Artist Jess Spagnolo has captured the essence of the Club’s commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in her design and has worked with youth and staff to bring her vision to life.”

BGC Kawarthas issued a call for mural submissions in November 2021. Submissions received were evaluated by BGC Kawarthas staff and youth and after careful consideration, Jess Spagnolo’s design was chosen.

Spagnolo’s design includes several silhouettes portraying the different individuals who can feel safe to be themselves at the Club. In addition, she has included four symbols which together acknowledge the Indigenous land we live on and the indigenous peoples who represent this community, the anti-racism values that BGC upholds, equity and unity and togetherness.
