StreetARToronto (StART) hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as StART information sessions, networking events, workshops, community engagement sessions, art launches and special art calls.



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.

StART and Quiet Streets are collaborating on a pilot project to create meaningful opportunities for artists to express underrepresented voices and facilitate place making and healing during this significant moment in urban history. This initiative will add vitality to the ‘Quiet Streets’ initiative the City of Toronto has introduced to enable physical distancing and encouraging walking and cycling on local streets during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The StART Front Line Heroes Art Project features a new series of street, mural and graffiti art that celebrates Toronto front line service providers including health care and essential workers, volunteers and other heroes responding to the global coronavirus pandemic. Titled “Celebrating Front Line Heroes”, the works represent a diversity of essential workers of all ages, genders, backgrounds and professions from mail carriers and grocery store employees to teachers and sanitation workers, as well as doctors, nurses, and first responders – and all of these works have been painted by an equally diverse group of artists. View the Celebrating Front Line Heroes booklet and join us in celebrating the heroes who are helping us through the global coronavirus pandemic.
