Mural Coordinators

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Application Deadline: May 3, 2019

The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is a community-driven project organized by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association entering its third year bringing inspiring, eye-catching and powerful street art to the Beltline Community.

In the last two years, BUMP installed 15 murals by local artists on buildings in the Beltline. The pilot project drew attention from local news, social media and everyday citizens. Our mural tours were attended by hundreds of people in 2018, and hundreds more attended the alley party that took place during the free BUMP Festival, which also showcased numerous local music artists. The murals are seen by thousands of Calgarians every day.

The BUMP Festival also provided opportunities for developing artists in Calgary to gain valuable experience apprenticing under our mural artists to assist in mural painting.

In its third year, BUMP is getting bigger and better. With a goal of 15 murals to be installed this year, BUMP will catch the eye of the tens of thousands of people who live in, work or visit the Beltline each and every day. The BUMP Festival is a free event and family friendly to help build connections and strengthen our community.

The BUMP Mural Coordinators will liaise with mural artists and building/wall owners to coordinate logistics and ensure successful execution of mural painting. Duties include working with artists, building owners, lift rental providers to establish mural design concept sign off and manage logistics at the mural site to enable the artists to paint their murals. Strong communication skills, knowledge of mural painting processes, attention to detail and a keen interest in promoting visual arts are major assets to this role.

Outcomes for youth will be increased experience and awareness to working in visual arts creation, building relationships with community stakeholders, and practical experience working as part of a team in building community and cultural experiences.
