Reclaiming black visibility in Strathcona
August 30, 2021
As part of the 2021 Vancouver Mural Festival, BSRP features murals from several Black artists throughout the Strathcona neighbourhood. The area was once a thriving enclave for Vancouver’s Black population before residents were displaced when the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts were built in the early 1970’s.
The intercultural representation of the murals is important as it helps bring to light to the historic and ongoing racism towards people of colour. These murals invite us to imagine what cities could become.
BC Housing sponsored four murals on the Solheim Place building at 251 Union Street in Vancouver, across the street from Nora Hendrix Place.
