Paint it Up! mural program

Project Status: 
Planned

Program overview

Now in its ninth year, the Paint it Up! mural program offers funding for outdoor mural art projects that support graffiti prevention, youth empowerment, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods. The program is one component of the City’s Graffiti Management Strategy.

Since its inception in 2010, the program has involved more than 1,922 youth, ranging in age from 12 to 22 years, working on 67 projects across the city, supported by an average project grant of $5,000. Outdoor murals have proven to be effective in reducing graffiti vandalism, supporting arts and culture, contributing to economic development and providing youth engagement opportunities.

Applications for the 2018 Paint It Up! mural program are available on the Crime Prevention Ottawa website or by calling 3-1-1. The deadline for applications is April 3 at 4:00 p.m. Projects must contribute to a clean, safe and beautiful city by engaging neighbourhoods and youth, in a constructive learning process, to create murals to prevent or deter graffiti.
