We are partnering with Project Nightlight (check them out here: http://projectnightlight.ca/events/) to host The Awareness Project 2.0. This event is all about community building, mental health, and the ways urban art can heal.
What are we planning for the event? For adults and old-souls, we will facilitate an open panel discussion with working Mural Artists and Mental Health professionals. Have questions? They've got answers. Just want to sit back and listen? Grab a warm drink and pull up a chair.
Meanwhile, we will have the kiddos and youth busy with spray paint. They will work on hands-on art projects with BUMP mural artists and work on creatively expressing their feelings with spray paint and various other creative modalities. Once the creativity is flowing, everyone will come together to create a collaborative art piece (yes adults, you get to spray paint too!) and enjoy a BBQ complete with live music from local bands
You don't want to miss this event next weekend!

We’re thrilled to kick off this year’s BUMP Festival Presented by TD with fifteen new murals, the biggest alley party in Calgary featuring Sango, Jubilee, Lou Phelps and many more plus Inner City Brewing Company beer gardens, mural tours, artist talks with Contemporary Calgary, movie in the park curated by the Calgary Underground Film Festival, and another legendary After Party at Hifi Club.
The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is a community-driven project to showcase art, promote Calgary, and transform the city into an inviting open air gallery. Now in its third year, BUMP has curated a diverse portfolio of local, national and international artists who have created eye-catching, inspiring and beautiful murals.
We believe that public art can enrich communities, create captivating places, celebrate diversity, challenge ideas, provoke discussion, and add beauty to the everyday.
