Two Calls to Artists: Art in Downtown Kiosks & Mural Roster
The City of Victoria has launched two Calls to Artists, inviting artists to submit their artwork for display in downtown kiosks for 2023 and also to be considered for the City’s Mural Art Roster for future mural projects.

Call to Artists: Mural Roster
Emerging and established artists in Western Canada, are invited to submit an application to be considered for the City of Victoria’s Mural Roster – a list of pre-qualified, artists available for mural opportunities from April 2023 through October 2025. This roster provides a streamlined process for connecting artists with local businesses and organizations looking to enhance their space with a mural project. A Selection Panel will choose the approved artists within this competition. Artists who are selected for the roster will be included on the City’s Mural Roster webpage. Submissions to the Mural Roster will be assessed on an artist’s unique visual storytelling style, and on their experience creating dynamic murals, collaborating with the community, and working on complex mural projects.

Call to Artists: Art in Kiosks
This year, artists are invited to submit up to five artworks to be considered for display in the kiosks on Douglas Street. Artists working in various types of visual media can apply – from photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, digital artwork, textile and beadworks. The artwork must be original to the artist. Preference may be given to applicants who have not previously participated in this program. Applicants must live in the Capital Region, including the Gulf Islands.


Online Information Sessions
Interested applicants will have an opportunity to meet with City staff to review the application requirements and ask questions at an online Information Session for each project. After registering for a session at victoria.ca/publicartopportunities, a link for the online event will be available.
