In April of 2014, the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF), invited This is My City Art Society (TMC), to help create a launch event for the kick-off to the building of Stepping Stone Manor in the Beltline. The event brought community together and included giant photos of members of the community being affixed to the house prior to its demolition.
Stepping Stone Manor is one of 8 25 – 30 suite apartment buildings for formerly homeless Calgarians that the CHF is building over the next few years. It is made possible through funding from the Government of Alberta and Cedarglen Living as part of the RESOLVE Campaign, a unique collaboration of nine Partner agencies raising $120 million to build affordable and supported rental housing for 3,000 vulnerable and homeless Calgarians.
As part of this year’s This is My City Festival, CHF and TMC invite you to join them at the exhibit of Possibilities in the Wind: An Artful Partnership. This exhibit showcases the transformation of the rundown rooming house that was on the property into a vibrant work of art – its last hurrah before demolition to make way for Stepping Stone Manor. Many community members worked together – and we celebrate them and their work! Come and learn more Possibilities in the Wind: An Artful Partnership and about the work being done to end homelessness through our collective impact.
