Chalk jam art, Community Commons Park

Join STEPS and the City of Mississauga in a series of community arts-based workshops and activities across three Mississauga Cultural Districts. The Mo(ve)ment project will feature a series of fun, family friendly activities led by local artists and collaborators in Cooksville, Downtown Core and Port Credit all summer. Mo(ve)ment aims to provide opportunities for the community to gather, build social capital and engage in a creative way. The project will temporarily animate and activate parks and public spaces to bring moments of surprise and joy for residents in their neighbourhoods.

Through a series of events alternating between Cooksville, Downtown Core and Port Credit from May to October, you will be able to participate in paint and chalk jams, workshops such as spice painting, instrument-making and balcony gardening, enjoy live music, free snacks and much more!
