The City of Toronto is launching a new program to help property owners who are victims of graffiti vandalism. The StART Support Mural Program will provide materials for the creation of art murals and graffiti art on walls visible from city streets that have a history of repeated graffiti vandalism.
The City will provide exterior paint in a full colour spectrum, application materials like brushes, rollers and paint trays and artistic quality spray paint, available in a variety of colours.
To participate in the StART Support Mural Program:
- The applicant’s property must have received a minimum of one (1) Notice of Violation for Graffiti from the City of Toronto’s Municipal Licensing & Standards division;
- The proposed location for the mural must be clearly visible from a city street; and
- The property must be located within the City of Toronto.
Property owners must hire an artist independently and pay for any other costs related to the project, like equipment rentals or permits, if they are required. The StreetARToronto Artist Directory www.toronto.ca/streetart may be a helpful tool to find an artist.
