Artist Call: Indigenous Mural Artist
‘Make It’ is a therapeutic art program run from Drive Youth Employment Services (a satellite of Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House) for youth aged 15-30 who are impacted by mental health challenges. The program consists of weekly drop-in ‘open studios’, where youth can create art in a supportive environment. In line with COVID-19 measures, this program operates virtually and in person. Details of blended service delivery will be determined by the ‘Make It’ Program Coordinator in collaboration with the ‘Make It’ Art Therapist and D-YES Coordinator.

The Mural Artist works alongside the ‘Make It’ Program Coordinator to facilitate the planning, designs, and painting of two large, East Vancouver murals in high-traffic public spaces (option to commit to just one if needed), as well as mentorship of youth in the ‘Make It’ program throughout these projects. This contract position requires some evening and weekend work, as well as daytime hours during the mural painting itself (generally 1-2 weeks max per mural). Additional hours may be provided from time to time for program meetings. The Mural Artist reports to the Make It Coordinator.
