Cochrane Together
A Remembrance

As diverse as our country are our stories and experiences. While the Covid-19 Pandemic dominated our lives for over 2 years, the time to heal and reflect is now.
With funding from the Government of Canada, we are planning a Celebration of Recognition highlighting heartwarming stories
and hardships we have all encountered during this time in the form of an Interactive Mosaic Mural.
The big picture mosaic artwork represents Cochrane residents reaching out to one another, bringing out the best in people, and features our long history of being rooted together as one community, symbolized by our beloved Grandfather tree.
Residents have the opportunity to be part of this legacy project by creating a piece of  art or submitting photographs as a remembrance of  a time where the world stood still. 

CAES is seeking submissions of original art (digitalized version) and photographs as well as accompanying stories of their Covid experiences – acts of kindness, new friends, sad losses, loneliness, hopes, new experiences, community stories, support provided for local businesses and challenges faced and overcome. All these stories and memories will support the bigger picture.

CAES is hosting two workshop days, January 29 th and February 25 th , at Route 22 where residents can attend to create their art piece and submit it for the mural onsite.

A feature of the mosaic mural will be an interactive element on the website. A digital image of the mural will have some “clickable” squares that will pop up with the story behind the submission. (All stories will be in English and French).

Upon completion, the mural will be near The Station Hub on Railway. More details
on location and the mural grand reveal event will be released as plans are confirmed.
