Vancouver Mural Festival hasn't added a story.
UPDATE: NOV 18, 2019 We did it... and YOU made it happen! Thanks to your support, we reached our VMF Fundraiser goal!! We’re so grateful to everyone who donated and to everyone who supports us throughout the year. Vancouver Mural Festival is for all of you. THANK YOU for being a part of it and thank you for helping us make it happen! We can’t wait to bring you an amazing Year 5!
What Does your Donation Fund?
Our guest curators are driven by the opportunity to give a voice to the many amazing local artists to tell their stories. Guest Curator, Roxanne Charles would like you to take a second look at the mural below. Can you see how The Frog is at the mouth of a pipeline, possibly protecting the coast from diluted bitumen? Your donation helps us support local artists from Tsleil Waututh Nation like Jordan Gallie and Erhen Snow to create bold and meaningful art like, "The Frog" (2018 VMF).

After providing 4 epic years of VMF, an entirely free public arts festival, we are extending a hand to all our supporters and those who want to see VMF continue into 2020. We want more than anything to provide the best VMF yet for our 5th year, but we simply cannot do it without your help.
Thanks to grants and sponsorships, we're able to pay our mural artists and our production crew at market rates for their creations. Pay ranges depending on size, scale, difficulty, accessibility, safety, and a number of other factors. There are so many costs associated with making the Vancouver Mural Festival a reality each year, and this year we are turning to you, our city, to help us become an even more sustainable non-profit org that brings so much awesome to Vancouver each year.
When you donate, these are the costs you are helping us cover!

It takes a village to raise a mural festival. Say hello to the huge team of hustlers that keep the art flowing. Mural by KC Hall.
We are already planning next year!!
All donations go towards painting murals in the city including paying for supplies, artist fees, and necessary equipment. Fun fact: Did you know that most of our artists are local, Vancouver artists who are doing their very first mural? A huge part of our mission is to give meaningful opportunities to local artists and strong mentorship so they can go big with their art.
Vancouver Mural Festival is organized by Create Vancouver Society, a Registered Non-Profit dedicated to artistic and cultural development in the Lower Mainland. Through the creation of permanent large-scale public murals, we provide a platform for Vancouver's diverse art scene to contribute to the city’s cultural legacy for years to come. Our annual festival takes place for a week in August in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, and we work throughout the year with neighbourhoods around the Lower Mainland to highlight the local culture and stories of their area.
