Artist-led Youth Mural

Thank you for your interest, this RFP is now closed.  The winning artist will be announced shortly.

Request for Proposals
Deadline: Friday November 9, 2018
Budget: $18,000

The City of Burlington seeks proposals from professional mural artists or teams experienced with community engagement to create a mural in collaboration with local youth (ages 14-18). The lead artist/ team will engage with youth throughout the development and execution of the project and will be expected to lead workshops to develop appropriate local content and to mentor youth in the mural making process. The mural will be unveiled as part of National Youth Week (May 2019).

Project Deliverables

  • Develop and lead a creative workshop for youth designed to identify artwork themes and to inform youth about the mural making process. This workshop will be delivered at four different locations (maximum).
  • Using information gathered during the workshops, develop a mural concept and present to youth for feedback (one in-person workshop/event)
  • Design, create and install mural in collaboration with youth

Project Goals

  • Reflect a spirit of inclusivity throughout the entire process – from concept development to final artwork
  • Provide youth participants with a tangible, hands-on opportunity to create a public art mural
  • Create a contemporary, professional mural using imagery inspired by the youth participants
