Create Vancouver Society with support from the City Of Vancouver, Mount Pleasant BIA, Canadian Heritage and The Province of British Columbia, proudly announce the return of the 3rd Annual Vancouver Mural Festival beginning on Monday August 6th and culminating with a street party on Saturday August 11, 2018.
**VANCOUVER MURAL FESTIVAL**
Date: Saturday Aug 11th, 2018
Loco: Between 12th Ave and 7th Ave Main Street | Laneway Between 7th and 8th leading to Johnathan Rogers Park.
VMF takes place on the Unceded Territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Transformed alleyways, live art, multiple stages, markets, street dance battles, graffiti jams, a huge craft beer garden, and of course: 30+ brand new works of public art.
The focus is once again mostly on an eclectic range of local and regional artists from diverse backgrounds in gallery-centric fine art, tattoo, street art, graffiti, traditional and contemporary indigenous design, and more. Vancouver standouts like Danielle Krysa (The Jealous Curator) and Musqueam designer and weaver Debra Sparrow top the list in addition to an all-star all-female roster of international guest muralists: FaithXLVII (South Africa), Bunnie Reiss (L.A.), and BK Foxx (New York). We are also excited to highlight a number of murals in partnership with local organizations such as Downtown Eastside Centre For The Arts, THRIVE Art Studio, Burrard Arts Foundation, and The Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House.
