The City of Surrey is inviting design proposals for the 2024 Public Art Street Banner.

Every year, the Public Art Program commissions artwork to be displayed on approximately 100 street poles near significant cultural destinations in Surrey. These artist-designed street banners add colour and vibrancy to streets throughout the City. They can also be opportunities to reflect on our journey as a community.

Surrey is a city undergoing immense and rapid change. It is quickly becoming an urban centre rich with cultural diversity. This diversity will play a key role in Surrey’s future. How do we ensure that our City is inclusive and welcoming to all?

We are looking for a design that celebrates Surrey’s cultural diversity and the important role it will play in Surrey’s future.

Eligibility:
The call is open to all BC residents.

Deadline for application: January 15, 2024

  • Your name, address, email and phone number.
