The first phase of Walls of Change, these canvas murals were coordinated by artist teams in various locations and community centres in the Downtown Eastside. The idea was to project a diversity of community generated images showing the multifaceted nature of the eastside, and countering the prevailing negative profiling at this time. Each of these free-hanging works, shown here at the public library, were later hung from buildings along East Hastings for a duration of several months, summer 1989.
