Return of the popular mural art program in Abitibi-Ouest

Artists are now invited to present a project that will aim to beautify the territory, until June 3.

Artists have until June 3 to submit their project as part of the mural art program

The MRC d’Abitibi-Ouest and the Municipality of La Sarre announce the return of the mural art program for the year 2022. Artists are now invited to present a project that will aim to beautify the territory by next June 3. A total envelope of $23,000 is available for the production of the works.
On the one hand, an amount of 11,500 dollars is available for creative projects to be carried out in the territory of the city of La Sarre. An amount of $11,500 is also available for artistic projects in the territory of Abitibi-Ouest, excluding the city of La Sarre.

Promote access to art and the inclusion of social groups

The mural art program encourages the creation of visible outdoor murals and invites citizens, organizations, businesses or local institutions to unite around a common cultural project. These projects are directly related to the vocation of cultural mediation, which is at the heart of the municipality’s services. The meetings between visual artists and citizens will promote access to art and the inclusion of social groups. “This program offers the opportunity to beautify our city through a greater presence and knowledge of art. The objective is also to mobilize citizens, companies and organizations to improve their living environments. Art makes us dream and makes us experience beautiful emotions! It is a great exchange between the artists of the region and the population”, concludes Mrs. Cassiopée Bois, cultural mediator of the Municipality of La Sarre.

A complement to the quality of life

“I am happy to renew this program for artists. With their creativity, not only will the territory be embellished, but that artistic touch also adds to our quality of life. The dynamic inhabitation of a territory is also the appropriation of places by citizens. Therefore, I invite all those interested to submit a project within the required deadline”, said Mr. Jaclin Bégin, prefect of the MRC d’Abitibi-Ouest.
