The Path To Reconciliation Mural Project

The Path To Reconciliation mural project is a collaborative initiative between the Creative City Centre and Regina Downtown.  

This mural is installed on the paving stones of a pedestrian-only city block, in an 8-foot-wide path down the centre of the FW Hill Mall, on the 1800 block of Scarth Street. The mural was designed and installed by lead artists, Geanna Dunbar and Brandy Jones, supported by Elder Brenda Dubois and Cultural/Indigenous Art Advisor Audrey Dreaver (First Nations University of Canada). The mural painting was incorporated into the opening ceremony for the National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations that occurred in the adjacent Victoria Park.

Regina Downtown has led numerous public art programs including the Footprints Commemorative Indigenous Art Project to honour victims and survivors of residential schools; art{outside} with the Mackenzie Art Gallery; an expanded Urban Canvas program with Economic Development Regina, and many others.  RDBID and Creative City Centre have worked together on initiatives like Pop Up Downtown, the Regina Tornado Legacy Project, Art in the Park and Frost Festival Regina.

This project has been financially supported through a grant from the Canada Healthy Communities Initiative.  For more information, please contact Jill Schmidt ( or Marian Donnelly (



The vision for this project is centered within our moral obligation to contribute to reconciliation efforts in Regina and Saskatchewan, reflected in the vision statement of our organization:
“The Creative City Centre will be recognized internationally as an artist-run cultural hub, and as a catalyst for public engagement and participation in the arts, through collaboration, professional development, performance and exhibition opportunities for Saskatchewan and Canadian artists that are shared digitally and utilized to best support the growth of the Saskatchewan arts ecology. The Creative City Centre will also be recognized for efforts to support reconciliation of all Treaty peoples through art initiatives that promote changing the narrative of Canadian colonial and Indigenous histories.”
