Indigenous Placemaking Proposed Locations

Indigenous Placemaking at the Library

The third round of Indigenous Placemaking will be in libraries throughout the city, placing permanent installations in four locations in the system. There are four locations — Crowfoot, Saddletowne, Seton, and Shawnessy libraries — and four possible areas within each location that can be chosen for the installation. One project will be selected per Library location. 

Crowfoot Library

Free standing and hanging area. An opportunity to hang something above the central area or a 3D installation on the floor in the main walkway.

Mural space at back of Library behind the working fireplace, an area for sitting and reading.

Free standing (3D), hanging, or interactive installation kids’ area, with great natural lighting. Ideal for interactive installations and tactile sculptures.
