Indigenous mural artist call

We're inviting proposals for temporary painted murals, digital printed artwork, and utility box art wraps to be displayed in the public realm.

This call aims to work with Indigenous artists to increase Local Nations’ cultural presence citywide, as well as Urban Indigenous culture.

Proposals will be accepted for an artist identified or listed civic site, a utility box art wrap, or both.

Projects will be recommended by an external panel of local and urban Indigenous artists and art professionals.
