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 vibrance of their area.
Our events and public art installations serve as catalysts for addressing many of the socio-cultural issues facing our city and artistic communities. These include, but are not limited to: public art policy, community building, environmental policy, reconciliation with First Nations, artistic censorship, diversity, cost of living, and the need for culturally sustainable development practices.
|We recognize that
our event and murals are produced on the traditional unceded
territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh
(Squamish) and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First
Nations. We strive to incorporate the visual culture of these
nations in our festival. We see our murals as an effective way to
celebrate our diverse local cultures and their histories, with
special focus on providing a platform for the local Nations'
contemporary and traditional cultural expressions and histories. |
We are an inclusive event intended for all classes, cultures, genders, ages, abilities, and beyond. We believe that it is crucial to the cultural health of the City of Vancouver to create tangible and lasting visual evidence of the rich diversity of voices living and working here. Our artist roster is an effort to reflect the varied histories present in our city, country, and our world.
