Women in Mural Art: Building Careers – Artist Talks

Mural Routes and East End Arts are hosting Women in Mural Art: Building Careers – curated by artists Fiya Bruxa and FATSPATROL. This is an opportunity for mural artists and mural art enthusiasts in Canada to hear, learn and network with established women mural artists working on an international scale.

*** Please note that the term “women” is used here for shorthand, and that our project includes all female-identifying and gender-marginalized people.

On April 27, 2024, we will host a full day of artist talks and panel discussion at the Centre for Social Innovation which will be open to the public. Registration fee is $10 and includes lunch and light refreshments.  

Guest Artists include: Lauren YS aka @squid.licker, Vanessa AGANA Espinoza ( @dj_agana), Jasmin Siddiqui aka @hera_herakut, Shalak Attack (@shalakattack) and EGR (@egrartist). 

Lauren YS, AGANA and Hera will each present about their individual practice, creative process and the projects they have worked on over their careers. Their presentations will be followed by a Q&A for participants to ask questions. Later in the day, these artists will be joined by Canada-based artists Shalak and EGR and program curators FATSPATROL and Fiya Bruxa in a panel discussion. The panel will delve deeper into current issues of the mural/street art industry from their own lived experience.
