Kentville Mural Festival – call for artists


Kentville Business Community is partnering with Town of Kentville and Tides Contemporary Art Gallery to run a mural festival called #weARTkentville!!

The festival will take place July 23-25, and all activities will be outside and will follow COVID-19 protocols.

We have some fantastic mural sites secured, and now we are looking for talented artists to make our town vibrant and colorful. The theme for the festival is ‘Tell Your Story’ and while anyone can apply, we are giving special encouragement to artists or teams of artists who are underrepresented in public spaces or have a connection to the community.

You can find further information and a link to the application form here: https://kentvillebusiness.ca/weartkentville/

The deadline to apply is June 25th. If someone who is talented in the arts is intimidated by making the foray into mural-making, we will be running a workshop for those who need assistance to help build our community of mural artists!
