Confederation Park Project
In 2017, Jori Cachene and artist Bruno Hernani were hired by the City of Regina for the Confederation Park Project. The project required Cachene and Hernani to work with 40 high school students from 7 different school, to create 4 murals which were installed around power boxes in Confederation Park. The artists began with pencil on paper, moved to acrylic on canvas, then digitized everything using Photoshop to stitch the pieces together. Finally, the images were printed on a durable outdoor plastic and installed in the park. Thematically, the artists asked students to consider 4 voices that were not heard in the confederation process of Canada. These include the voices of First Nations, the environment, immigrant peoples, and women.
