”Just Us” Art Call

 

StART has received requests from artists interested in doing more projects in support of Black Lives Matter and the fight for justice for Indigenous as well as support from these communities. Titled “Just Us” the street, mural and graffiti artworks created in response to this call will highlight past and current injustice against visible minorities, and the importance, benefits and opportunities to build a better future through inclusion, collaboration and knowledge sharing.

 

For this Request for Concept Descriptions, the City of Toronto is seeking submissions from street, mural and graffiti artists or artist collectives who have access to a wall exposed to city streets with written authorization from the property owner granting the artist permission to paint their mural concept on the wall.

Learn more and apply for the StART Just Us call.

Toronto is home to some of the best street art and street artists in the world!

To celebrate Toronto and the outstanding creative talent in Toronto, Micki Moore in collaboration with StreetARToronto (StART), has launched the ‘Art Over Bridges’ project to engage artists to design and install three dimensional artwork on bridges in Toronto. Art Over Bridges is a transformative new placemaking initiative that adds colour and vitality to neighbourhoods; demonstrates the positive impacts of diversity and inclusion, fosters community engagement; encourages active transportation; and showcases the creativity of artists, arts organizations and the city of Toronto.

At the heart of Micki’s vision is a series of vibrant and high-quality Art Bridges throughout Toronto, beginning with art over the Jameson Avenue Pedestrian bridge. Micki’s placemaking initiative promises to strengthen the connection between people and the places they share through a collaborative process to improve the look and feel of our streets and the public realm.
