Fostering Unity Through Art in Milton
“Exclusively Inclusive” is a public art project that explores the themes of racism and hate with the hope that we can all do better.
Welcome to the vibrant world of the Exclusively Inclusive Art Projects, a public art initiative by Arts Milton that delves into themes of racism and hate, aiming to inspire positive change.
The Exclusively Inclusive Art Projects seamlessly integrate art, education, and community engagement. Year one featured traffic box art across Milton, transforming ordinary spaces into vibrant expressions of inclusion. A gallery opening and panel discussion brought together the community, facilitating dialogue around the powerful themes explored in the project.
This project, a collaboration with the Town of Milton and Red T Kids Media, has turned Milton into an art-filled space celebrating diversity, inclusivity, and the transformative power of art. The murals, traffic boxes, and the Walk and Wander event, now on full display, invite you to explore the richness of our community’s tapestry. Funding for this project was provided by the Government of Ontario.
In both years, we extended this project’s impact to 20 schools, 10 in each year, offering free workshops conducted by our artists. This provided students with a unique opportunity to engage with the project’s themes directly. The traffic box art, featured in the first year, includes QR codes that, when scanned, offer insights into the artist and their work, complemented by learning materials by Red T Kids’ Media—downloadable for free on our website, fostering valuable discussions on inclusivity and diversity.
