Call for Expressions of Interest: Surrey Nature Centre Mural

Artist Call (Public Art) – Surrey Nature Centre Mural

Submission Deadline: April 22, 2024
Design Fee: $15,000

The City of Surrey is inviting expressions of interest to design and paint a mural at the Surrey Nature Centre. Nestled beside Green Timbers Urban Forest, the Surrey Nature Centre invites all age groups to embark on an immersive journey into nature. This unique green space in Surrey offers a diverse range of programs and activities, encouraging exploration, learning, and connection with the natural world.

The Nature Centre offers guided nature walks led by knowledgeable team members, group exploration programs tailored to specific interests, and outdoor story times. From delving into how animals brave the cold to early years programs fostering a love for nature in preschoolers, the Center caters to a broad audience. The Centre’s commitment to education extends to school programs, teacher activity kits, and Pro-D Day camps.

The new mural will turn the Surrey Nature Centre into a vibrant landmark and will welcome guests to the facility and to the park at large. The mural should be designed to complement and integrate with the natural setting.

Eligibility: BC-based artists and teams are welcome to apply for this opportunity.

Deadline for application is April 22, 2024
