Murals are going up in all parts of the country. As freely accessible public art, murals create vibrant communities by engaging with everyone. Murals can look to the future, speak to present day issues, commemorate the past, or just beautify and rejuvenate a community…
ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
The webinar Making Murals is composed of two presentations. We start with a presentation by Mural Routes (a non profit organization out of Toronto) who will outline how they mentor and train artists and communities on what murals can do. As an organization dedicated to murals, they have established many Best Practices on how to make murals. The second presentation is by Carla Rae Taylor, an Edmonton visual artists and storyteller that has recently started coordinating mural creations in Edmonton and Yellowknife.
After these two presentations, there will be about twenty-minute Q+A based on your questions. As the webinar is on Zoom, we will unmute the audience so you can ask your own questions. Join us and learn more about Murals, what they do and whether they can be part of your career.
