Mural & Community Art Roster / Mural Toolkit

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 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.

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.

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.

Mural and Community Art Roster

The City of Victoria is establishing a roster of pre-qualified, local artists to be available for mural and community art opportunities in 2020. Applications to the roster are now closed.

The new Roster will streamline the City’s process for connecting artists with local businesses and organizations looking to enhance their exterior walls with a mural. Opportunities could include private commissions by local businesses looking to animate their exterior walls with an artistic element, or working with a neighbourhood community association or school in need of an artist to coordinate a community art project.
