Paint it Up!


Following the success of last year’s Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) outdoor mural painting project, “Paint it Up!” is returning again for 2017 and applications are now being accepted.


Applications will be received until 4:00 PM, Tuesday April 4th for any outdoor mural art projects that supports graffiti prevention, youth empowerment, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods.

Projects must contribute to a clean, safe and beautiful city by engaging neighbourhoods and youth in a constructive learning process to create murals to prevent or deter graffiti.

This is a fantastic initiative that has resulted in a number of beautiful community murals that youth can feel proud of and I encourage any residents with an inclination for art to submit an application.
