Call for Artists: Videoconference Platform Digital Backgrounds

Mural Routes invites mural artists from all across Canada, to submit an expression of interest to design and produce a videoconference platform digital background that can be used on apps such as Zoom, Google Meet, Teams, Webex and GoToMeeting. A total of ten (10) digital backgrounds will be commissioned.

The digital backgrounds will be made available on Mural Routes’ website for anybody to download and use.

No previous experience with digital design is necessary – selected mural artists will have the opportunity to participate in a Digital Design workshop in order to produce the digital backgrounds. Tech can also be provided – if you do not have a device to design (iPad or other), Mural Routes will be lending mural artists one to participate in the workshop and to produce the digital background. The theme of the backgrounds is open. No logos, advertising, shocking imagery or offensive language will be accepted.

All mural artists legally able to work in Canada are eligible to apply. Any mural artist may submit a proposal in accordance with the guidelines provided below.

Deadline: December 17 at 5 p.m.


We welcome and encourage submissions from mural artists of all backgrounds and walks of life including, but not limited to, emerging artists who identify as Indigenous, Black, and/or artists of colour; female identifying artists; refugee, newcomer and immigrant artists; and those who have been greatly affected by the pandemic.
