For artists outside of Vancouver, can you cover your own travel and accommodations? *
Yes   No
All selected artists are compensated for their work. We generally select for around 80% local artists because we have a lot of talent locally, but also because we have a limited travel budget. If you're able to cover your own travel and accommodations, it makes it much easier for us to consider bringing in more artists from out of town. 

For Canadian Artists, you can look into Canada Council Travel Grants to cover these costs if you are selected.
Is there anything else you'd like us to know?
We're trying out some new software this year and there have been a few errors with this form. If you receive a message when completing your application, send us an email at hello@vanmuralfest.com.

Thanks for applying!
