The City of Toronto, StreetARToronto invites artists who identify as Indigenous persons to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to participate in the River Street Underpass Mural Project at King/Queen Triangle in Toronto, Ontario. The goal of this EOI is to obtain a roster of artists who will be eligible to participate in this project.
The goal of this project is to beautify and animate the North and South walls of the underpass with meaningful Murals (one on each side of the underpass) representative of the local historical Indigenous perspective.
This Expression of Interest is facilitated by StreetARToronto Project Lead, Catherine Curran.
Submissions are due no later than June 5, 2023, by 11:30 p.m. EST
This call invites concepts from street, mural and graffiti artists and artist collectives committed to reconciliation, diversity, equity, inclusion and inspiring positive change through who they are and the work they create. Project proposals should speak to historic and current social issues and movements within Black and Indigenous communities and equity deserving groups and the importance, benefits and opportunities to build a better future through inclusion, collaboration and knowledge sharing.
