The Mural Grant offers support towards the costs involved in creating and delivering new inspiring installations in prominent Downtown locations. Aimed at improving the image of structures in Downtown Halifax, the work will enhance the environment and add to the experience of visiting the area while also contributing to local regeneration. This opportunity exists for artists to bring their ideas to life and provide a platform for their talent to be showcased.
Since part of the intent of this program is to add colour to the Downtown and enhance the pedestrian experience, priority will be given to proposals that are playful, fun, and take into consideration the element of surprise and unexpectedness in an urban environment. Applications can be considered in conjunction with the Gritty to Pretty Façade Lighting Grant to further enhance the nighttime pedestrian experience.
