Celebration Square is 10! To capture the magic of a decade of memories, MCS invited local artist Bareket Kezwer to create an immersive mural for residents to enjoy at the square.
Lovingly plant thought seeds in the garden of your mind.
Kind words grow into beautiful worlds.
Bareket is a local muralist, community engaged artist and facilitator, curator, cultural producer, creative director, graphic designer, frequent collaborator and eternal optimist.
Her multidisciplinary practice is motivated by a desire to spread joy, cultivate gratitude, celebrate the power of kindness and compassion, and support the growth of inclusive and connected communities. She programs and facilitates projects that enable people to express themselves through creative engagement and increase representation of Toronto's diverse population. In her murals, she works with bright colours and bold patterns to captivate people's attention and fill them with delight.
In 2017, she founded Women Paint, a street art jam celebrating the strength, resilience and diverse stories of women and non-binary artist and community members. As the initiative's creative director, she has produced 80 murals by emerging and early career artists, and facilitated intergenerational community murals and mural camps with youth.
