Exchange: 19th National Mural Symposium

“Mural Routes invites you to join us for Exchange: 19th National Mural Symposium at the Spoke Club, Toronto.

About the Symposium

For over 20 years, Mural Routes has brought the mural art community together for learning, sharing and networking. This year we highlight and celebrate murals as a tool for Exchange and creative gateway for public dialogue.  Presenters will share local and international projects and ideas to illustrate how the value of a mural lies not only in the art left behind, but in the process of exchanging skills, perspectives, stories and experiences. We invite you to join us, learn from your peers, and walk away with a new perspective on mural art.

Check out the schedule and full list speakers here.”
