We're exploring the benefits and feasibility of sanctioned graffiti zones. As part of this pilot, we'll:
- Study the benefits of a graffiti art wall
- Identify the oversight and supports that are needed to make it a success
- Consider the future viability of graffiti art walls in Vancouver
A specific goal of this pilot is to support local Indigenous graffiti artists.
This pilot is a direction from Council in response to an increase in nuisance graffiti throughout COVID-19.
