Artist Chris Bose takes us on a tour of his favourite Kamloops arts spots, beginning with murals he co-created with community members at the Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship and the Immigrant Services Centres. Next, check out the Free Wall, a place where graffiti is legal. Then relax on a bench with a view at Peterson Creek Park.
While listening to Chris’ stories, watch the images below from each site.
