International Mural Symposium: Call for Artists

International Mural Festival and Symposium

The Deadline for first stage applications: Friday, December 8, 2006

Graffiti Art Programming Inc. is proud of the success of the inaugural International Mural Festival and Symposium, held in the summer of 2006, and we want to do it again in 2007!

Mural artists are invited to enter a two-stage mural art competition. Artists will be selected by a jury to reproduce their own designs, at 1000 square feet, at various prominent downtown locations. Artists who are chosen to participate will be paid $8,000 to produce their mural during the Festival. Travel and accommodations for out-of-town artists will be paid for.

This year's Festival will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, in July 2007.

We hope to raise significant interest in public art and its effect in the city. It's also an opportunity to make a range of art styles accessible to everyone, without the barriers of operating hours and admission fees. The Festival will also have a Symposium component, to further the discussion about art in the public realm and the mural industry.

Please see the attached 'Call for Entries' , and visit to download the Project Brief. Pass on this information to anyone who might be interested!
