“Everything is Going to be Alright” Sign

This work appears on the oldest building in Vancouver’s China Town, symbolizing the spirit of the city’s Downtown Eastside. This became one way the neighborhood gained a voice, and could speak to the millions of visitors for the 2010 Winter Olympics Games in Vancouver. The design demonstrates their hope for the games, the redevelopment of the area, and the spirit of the residents. This is a clear example of a message being broadcast via an unlikely space, and given the context and content gives the audience something to ponder.
