Artist Application 2018

All artists must be available to complete painting
between July 30 - August 11th, 2018.


Thank you for your interest in being an artist at Vancouver Mural Festival 2018!  We receive hundreds of applications and this form is the best way for us to be able to sort and review all of them.  Some information is required while other fields are optional ways to let us know more about you.  If there is anything in this form that you do not feel comfortable sharing, please send us a direct email to hello@vanmuralfest.com and let us know so we can make necessary arrangements if possible.
We'd like to reiterate a few important points:

This form is for those interested in painting a mural for VMF's summer programming. For any other enquiries please see our contact page for the relevant form or email address.

Due to the large number of applications we receive, only successful applications will be contacted by our team by May 1, 2018.

We do not accept mural designs at this stage, all curatorial decisions are based on artists' past work through online portfolios. This can be a personal website, instagram, tumblr, etc.  


We'll only be selecting between 20-30 artists. 80% of our artists are generally within the Vancouver area. All artists are compensated fairly for their work and equipped with supplies, support, paint, and lifts. We can afford very little in terms of travel and accommodations. If you're from outside of Vancouver and you'd still like to apply, please be aware that you will likely have to take on your own travel/accom expenses. 

Our curators use many different factors to decide which artists will paint so the more info you give us the better.  We also select artists who will present a wide variety of styles and subject matters, which will be complimentary as a whole.

Both emerging and established artists are welcome to apply.
