In And Around The BLOX - March 2024

Donate your wall to the Beltline Urban Mural Project!

Calling all Building Owners! The 2024 BUMP Festival is seeking new walls in Calgary’s Beltline. Housing a mural on your building makes it an important landmark in the city. 

With every new mural BUMP programs, they not only allow an artist to create a beautiful art piece that belongs to the public, but also re-imaginine your space and how it fits into our growing city. 

BUMP murals can lead to: 

  • More awareness about your space 
  • Increased customers to local businesses 
  • A well-connected community 
  • Increased interest from visitors to Calgary 
  • A more beautiful neighbourhood 
  • Civic pride & responsibility 
  • Decreased risk of tagging & vandalism 

Please read BUMP Festival's 2024 Mural Wall Donation guide for more details & frequently asked questions. You can submit your wall for consideration to the 2024 BUMP Festival through this intake form:

 If you know of a wall we should have our eyes on, please contact!
