Ukrainian Canadian Social Services – Toronto is initiating the Bloor West Ukrainian Mural project by sending out a call for submissions to create an original collaborative large-scale mural located on the east side of the Ukrainian Canadian Social Services building on the corner of Bloor and Jane Streets in Toronto, Ontario.
To celebrate Canada’s 150 year anniversary and 125 years of Ukrainians in Canada, we would like to bring multiple Canadian artists together to create a long-term mural and landmark commemorating the neighbourhoods of Bloor West and its immigrant experience; specifically to create a current and creative physical Ukrainian-Canadian presence in the city. The selected mural artists will be responsible for the implementation of a mural commission to be painted on a section of the wall that will be determined at the consultation stage of the project. Selected artists will meet with the Mural Project team to combine their original artwork/design elements together to create the mural as one cohesive piece.
Materials and artist honorarium will be covered by fundraising efforts by the Bloor West Ukrainian Mural Project. There will be a planned unveiling in September 2017 as part of the Bloor West Village Ukrainian Festival. Selected applications will be chosen based on merit and understanding of the purpose of the mural.
