Supporting Local Artists in Vancouver Mural Festival 2020

Posted on Oct 13, 2020 by Brad McCabe

We have always believed that creativity has the power to bring communities together, allowing people to share their stories of love and hope in times of extreme darkness. We at Wondershare are dedicated to helping individuals re-imagine the way they tell these stories, in ways that can inspire others and build a community. That’s why we’ve sponsored five local artists to share their creative hearts with us and paint some joy back into the Mount Pleasant neighborhood, through colorful murals organized by Vancouver Mural Festival (VMF).

The Vancouver Mural Festival is an annual program dedicated to protecting and preserving arts and culture in the Lower Mainland. The program is meant to build connections between art and people, and offer new perspectives to how individuals perceive public art in the city. The theme for this year’s VMF is climate change, so many contributing artists wanted to raise awareness in some of their murals.

Our sponsorship – as part of our charitable initiative #WondershareCares – directly supports talented artists of all ages, whose unique murals both inspire and celebrate individual creativity. Each artist has their own story to tell, in diverse styles, designs, and methods. We wanted to give the spotlight to these creators and help them share these special stories. We hope that in doing so, we can inspire people to share a part of themselves through their art and be a part of this wonderful community that we have created.
