The StART Monumental program provides opportunities for street artists to create works of art that make Toronto streets vibrant, safe, walkable and beautiful through community-engaged, culturally relevant art. StART Monumental will also create opportunities to mentor emerging and mid-career mural artists in an effort provide them with the training and experience necessary to assist them with producing large scale murals at heights.

Guidelines & Eligibility

To participate in a StART Monumental Project, the artist(s) or artist collective(s) must:

  • Identify a large wall or tall building for a project (minimum of 3,000 square feet);
