About the murals

Who gives the organization permission to paint the walls?
Permission is granted by the wall owner. Pieces will often go through a jury process prior to final decision making.

How long does a mural take?
Depending on weather, and priming, a mural can take up to 1 week to install.

How long does a mural last? Who maintains them?
Average lifespan of a mural is 9 - 12 years, and many murals are installed with a maintenance budget in mind. The party responsible for maintenance is specific to the contract with which the mural is created.

Can they paint a mural on my house?
Our artists are not house painters.
They spend hours creating a design that matches the size and the area of the wall they are painting. Festival Inspire leaves the inspiration for the piece up to the artists free will.
I you want to have a mural on a private house contact us and we could eventually make the contact with an artist if an appropriate budget is offered by the wall owner.

Is this graffiti?
No.
Graffiti is a term that means 2 things:
1) Don’t have permission
2) A specific art style
Festival Inspire has permission to be putting up these murals, and none are being done in a graffiti style.

Festival Inspire and the kids

Festival Inspire is an inclusive and family/kid friendly event
We want to inspire everyone!

Fostering creativity won't just increase your child's chances of becoming the next Picasso. You're also helping him/her develop mentally, socially, and emotionally.

during the festival, some activities are even specially built for kids. These last years we heard so many times kids saying "It was the best day of my life!" or desperate parents trying to go home but the kids wanted to stay longer and watch the murals or paint by themselves.

NB: We are not responsible for family crises 🙂

Bring an animal to the festival

We do love animals.

They are welcome on exterior locations and events if you follow the city laws.
