Nelson mural fest needs artists and walls for 2021

Deadline for applications is Jan. 15

Submitted by the Nelson and District Arts Council

Artist and building owner applications for the Nelson International Mural Festival are now live.

The Nelson and District Arts Council (NDAC) is presenting the fourth annual mural festival in collaboration with the City of Nelson. Cultural vibrancy in Nelson continues to flourish under the festival’s engagement of street artists, muralists, creators, and art enthusiasts joining the festival from the local, national, and international art scene.

Through large scale public artworks and educational opportunities, and by animating the public sphere with reflections of local cultures, histories, and stories, the NDAC furthers and fortifies collaboration among artists, businesses, and community members. The festival is inclusive of all cultures, genders, ages, and abilities.

We hope to create up to 10 murals in our 2021 season. Muralist and building owner applications are currently available on our website at www.ndac.ca. and close on Jan. 15, at 5 p.m.

Any questions can be directed to info@ndac.ca.
