Mural Roster and Toolkit

Call to Artists – Mural Roster 

The City of Victoria would like to add to it’s roster of pre-qualified, artists to be available for mural opportunities between April 2023 and October 2025 

This Roster helps streamline the City’s process for selecting artists for City projects, and helps to connect artists with local businesses and organizations looking to enhance their exterior walls with a mural. It will also assist the City in connecting a neighbourhood association or school with an artist to coordinate a community mural project.  

Please see the Public Art opportunity page for more details.

Mural Toolkit

 The Mural Toolkit is a helpful step-by-step guide for artists and business owners who are interested in the mural making process in Victoria. The Mural Toolkit and connecting artists with local businesses and organizations are key deliverables of the City’s Create Victoria Arts and Culture Master Plan.

Murals in well-considered locations can often bring a community together and improve spaces for people passing 

This mural toolkit is a step-by-step guide for anyone who is interested in the mural-making process, although is by no means the only way to go about creating a mural.through neighbourhoods. A mural can create a sense of belonging and pride, reduce graffiti, and allow neighbourhoods to shape their community through beautification and shared project goals.

The Mural Toolkit is a draft document that we will refine with the public's input. Please email culture@victoria.ca with your comments and feedback on how we can improve this document.
