OUR goals


Residents will notice an immediate, visible change to a physical space in their neighbourhood, adding vibrancy to our communities.


COVID-19 has played a role in our local community awareness, and it is our goal for people to be welcomed into their public space, and build a sense of pride for the place they call home.


The multiplier effect is a magical thing. By improving one area, the residual effects are felt by the residents and businesses owners around them - encouraging foot traffic and increasing safety.


Signs of Life recognizes Culture as the fourth economic pillar.
By providing economic opportunities in the Creative Sector, we increase quality of life for our residents and add value to all of Durham Region.
