Vancouver Mural Festival 2021

Since 2016, the Vancouver Mural Festival has been supporting the creation of murals across the city: more than 250! Now, in August of 2021, we will be able to discover 60 new murals across 11 neighbourhoods.

The VMF list 6 key values that underpin their work:
1. Design for accessibility
2. Reflect diversity
3. Demonstrate accountability
4. Seek collaboration
5. Blow minds
6. Learn from everything

Along with the murals, VMF will feature 40 live shows, mural tours, and a variety of talks and workshops. VMF 2021 will also feature three special community projects:
i. Blanketing The City: Blanketing The City
ii. Black Strathcona Resurgence Project: Black Strathcona Resurgence Project
iii. Punjabi Market: Murals in the Market: Punjabi Market. Murals in the Market
