Seeking a Community for the Next Municipal Mural

The Municipality, partnering with the Nova Scotia Health Authority, just revealed the Antigonish Health Equity Mural. Based on this success we are looking for the next community to host a municipal mural.

A community group wishing to host a mural can contact the Municipality through Tammy Feltmate or their local councillor. To be considered eligible to host a mural we require:

  • A proposed location for the mural – the location should be a common community gathering place; and,
  • A commitment to partner with the Municipality to select a mural design through an open competition, provide input on the design and facilitate the installation.

The host community will be selected by draw at a future Council Meeting. The 2nd Annual Municipal Mural Competition will be launched once the host community is chosen. This competition seeks to foster the development of public spaces throughout Antigonish County and showcase our arts community. Amateur and professional artists are challenged to design an image that reflects the community.

If your group is interested in hosting a mural you must let us know by Friday, February 12, 2016.

If you have any questions please contact Tammy at or 902.863.1117.
