                                  Community History

                                  Art & Story Telling

     To date the Denver Skyland neighborhood has installed two resident-created Back Alley Art Galleries.  These two installations brought a cross section of neighbors together to create beautiful focal points of neighborhood pride. 

    This second phase of the project introduced the history of properties through an Archaeology Research Club 

     History inspires us to look back at the past and find things that inspire us to do great things for other people, places and things. Youth learn the importance of community historic research preserving a portion of their neighborhood's contribution to the city's growth. These discoveries are transformed into interactive educational art utilizing computer coding technology.

           ALLEYSCAPE IMPROVEMENT CAMPAIGN

                                - Building Community through Art -

 

Voices On Canvas Inc. and North City Park's Alley Art Partnership Mission By supporting communal art projects throughout the alleys of North City Park, we want to:

  • Delight alley wanderers with unexpected beauty

  • Promote friendships and neighborhood pride

  • Encourage artistic development and growth

  • Get neighbors working together to beautify our alleys

  • Experience camaraderie

  • Recycle otherwise-unused materials

  • Enjoy our new neighborhood acquaintances by sharing food and drink

 

VOCI's goals: Kids will learn the importance of this very special community building activities and discuss how they might possible start a project like this in their neighborhood/community:

  • Bring people together (fostering inter-generational relationships)

  • Get neighbors working together to beautify our alleys

  • Produces cleaner, safer alley landscapes fro communities

  • Help resolve issues with illegal dumping

  • Develop healthier walking environments

  • Create destination places of this untapped community landscape

  • Generate ownership
