Mosaic the City is a funded initiative that requires dedicated support and commitment. This section will contain information about those who have sponsored and supported Mosaic the City and/or any project of it. Recognizing our sponsors and associates is very important to us, without them we would not be what we are.

All together more then 1000 people have played roles in these projects :) We are happy to watch this list grow and grow, and see the Community Unity spread around the GLOBE.

MtC Victoria's Sponsors:

Join us this summer in Market Sqaure to help build the the "Artists of Consciousness" mosaic, an environmentally conscious piece made from recycled materials. Thanks to MS for their continued support of the Arts in Victoria.

Market Square held Mosaic the City's first Community Unity project in their lower courtyard all summer at no cost to the project. They provided storage and workshop spaces, maintenance help with set up and take down, they mounted the finished mosaics and paid the info plaques to accompany them. They were a wonderful partner to the Mosaic the Market project. Thanks to all the staff in Market Square who made this project possible. We are excited about having our first mosaics mounted in the 'heart of old Victoria."

Under the professional direction of John Azar, Canopy Management Group has helped Mosaic the City develop their guidebook and a workflow map for each project. These guidebooks were developed to help lead organizations plan, prepare and complete their community unity project. Work Flow Press is a Canopy Management Group company that produces process management guidebooks that walk users through all the activities they will encounter on their way to project success. A huge and very special thanks to John and his unwavering support of Mosaic the City.


Metamend Search Engine Optimization Experts assisted with the development, hosting and promotion of the Mosaic the City website. This group has been an amazing asset to the project. We look forward to a long relationship with this company.

Village 900- is the first media sponsor for Mosaic the City :)

Village 900 is a non-profit campus/instructional radio station located at Camosun College in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Our mandate is threefold; to provide an alternative radio service to the people of Victoria, to train roadcast students in co-operation with the Applied Communication Program at Camosun College, and to produce and air educational programming for university transfer credit.

Village 900 is operated by the non-profit CKMO Radio Society. Our music programming is a format called Global Roots, a contemporary mix of folk, roots and worldbeat music.

Mosaic the City is very proud to have the support of this community conscious local radio station. Special thanks to Amanda Farrell for taking action on this partnership :)

Special thanks to Jim Hart for hunting through the back room for tiles to donate to the project in Fernwood. These tiles were just the thing we needed and the mosaics are amazing.

Special thank you to Amanda for her wonderful donation of two of her prints. One of the photos was given to an artist on the Fernwood project, while the other went all the way to Ireland and was given to the project leader. Thanks :)
