About the project

Art Alley is the first project of its kind in Red Deer to transform the walls of downtown into a vibrant, positive space for the community.

Research shows that beautifying an area that regularly attracts negative activity helps create more ownership and interest in a space, thereby reducing unsavoury activity. This is the Art Alley initiative.

Participating artists are eligible for an honorarium.
