A Gombey-inspired mural is to grace the walls of the old Canadian Hotel on Reid Street, thanks to a new community art programme.

The Chewstick Foundation collaborated with Bermemes and CellOne on the project. 

The concept for the mural was created and illustrated by artist Dejon Simons and will feature the faces of Gombeys with unique Bermudian phrases that were submitted by followers of Bermuda Memes’ social media pages.

Bermemes is inviting the community to get even more involved and help give colour to the mural between 12pm to 3pm on Saturday. 

Paint and brushes will be provided, and there will be goodies given throughout the day from CellOne and Sweet Saak Bakery.
