Tell Your Story!
Coquitlam 125 will bring our community together to celebrate and showcase what makes our people and our City great, sharing the stories of our past and creating our future narrative. Visual, performing, literary and multimedia artists will connect with the community throughout the Coquitlam 125 celebrations to curate, animate, showcase and record our stories.
As a legacy project for Coquitlam 125, a BC artist will be commissioned to design a salmon sculpture to acknowledge the importance of Sockeye salmon to Coquitlam’s history. Twelve sculptures will be painted by BC artists and installed throughout the City as permanent public art.
