Mosaic the City Community Unity Society
~ A Community Development Programme ~
Welcome and Thank you!
Thank you for checking out our original website for Mosaic The City – Community Unity Society.
We are 9 years old now and so is this site and for that reason we have moved to a more interactive , current, community on Facebook.
In just under nine years, we have build more than 30 projects across the CRD and included more than 5000 people. Very proud and excited to see what will be next.
Come and check out all we do and have been doing for the past five years, and keep your eyes peeled as we plan something super for our 10 year anniversary in 2013!
We are planning to build a whole new site – soon- if you know anyone who would love to work with a growing NFP, please give them our info.
In Community Unity,
Shylene & the Team.

August 28th at Fernfest, Mosaic the City enjoyed theri first Community
Unity March. Together with over 30 people The
Flying Accuasations pipered the crowd to the mosaic mural on
the 2400block of Chambers Street.
The third project for MtC led by Shylene, a resident
of Fernwood for the last six years, and in partnerships with the
Centre, the Fernwood
Community Association and the Cox family.
This quick summer project created a number of mosaics
placed in various spaces around Fernwood.. how many can you find?????
As the first phase of Mosaic Fernwood we are working
to create not only community designed & built mosaics, but also
lasting community spirit.
Phase II is UP to YOU..
If you are interested in the idea of Community
Unity and want to play a big role in making your
community safer, friendlier and more artistic,
JOIN THE TEAM. For Phase II to happen in Fernwood
there needs to be a team dedicated to making it happen.

#2 Central Middle
School's Community Unity Project - Winter/Spring 2004
This was the second project for MtC, in partnership with School
district 61, Grace Lutheran Church, Local 730 of the International
Association of Firefighters, and Artisan Tile.
This 12-week project invited the people of Fernwood
to think about "What community means to you." Within this
theme the group found a way to mix the history of the area with
the current landscape to create an amazing twelve-foot mosaic which
is now ground laid in the Fort Street entrance of the School.
Over one hundred people worked on the mosaic and
more then thirty businesses and organization lent their support
to the project. Another great success for Mosaic the City.

# 1 Mosaic the Market - Spring/Summer
The first Mosaic the City project was in partnership with Market
Square, Out of Hand Gallery, Lulu-lemon and Shylene.com.
This summer long project, invited the community
to design around the themes " Use what you have & what
does Victoria Mean to you?" About one hundred hand drawn designs
were submitted to the project with aprox 30% were then used in the
five mosaics that are now permanently mounted in the square.
With participation of over 300 people from more
the 15 nations, 12 different island communities, five provinces,
and seven of the US states, this first project was a great success
and a great stepping stone on which to start Mosaic the City- Victoria.
