Wall-to-Wall Mural & Culture Festival / Call for Submissions
Wall-to-Wal Mural & Culture Festival
Wall-to-Wall Mural & Culture Festival will be shifting to a digital submission model, which allows artists to submit digital designs to be printed onto panels and installed safely by a professional sign company. By shifting to a digital submission model, Wall-to-Wall is able to keep artists connected to the public at a safe distance.
Synonym Art Consultation and Graffiti Art Programming, the co-creators of the festival, are committed to providing meaningful employment and mentorship opportunities to artists and musicians and to facilitate the celebration of art and culture with unique, inclusive, community-minded events that serve as safer spaces for all.
We at Wall-to-Wall are committed to curation that uplifts artists, mentors, musicians, and performers belonging to under-supported communities, particularly those who identify as Black, Indigenous, Afro-Indigenous, People of Colour, 2SLGBTQIA+, artists with disabilities, and any and all people who fall within these intersections.
All selected artists and artwork must adhere to our Safer Spaces Policy: https://www.walltowallwpg.com/our-policy
- Artists, art collectives, or creatives working in a visual format
- Artists locally (Manitoba), Nationally (Canada), or Internationally
- Artists that can adhere to the Safer Spaces Policy: walltowallwpg.com/our-policy
- Visual art mediums including, painting, drawing, illustrations, graphic design, photography, digital design, collages, illustrations. (High-resolution scans or photographs of paintings or other hand-rendered artwork are eligible.)
PANEL PRINT INFORMATION
All selected designs will be printed on a vinyl sticker, placed on di-bond panels, and professionally installed within Winnipeg's central neighbourhoods.
Each completed panel will be 8' x 8' OR 4' x 16'.
All panel printing, installation, facilitation, and insurance costs will be covered by Wall-to-Wall.

The theme Supernatural Women opens up questions of culture, history, legend, politics, femininity and womanhood. Participants may decide to focus only on a tiny segment of the theme for their work. For example, they might focus on just one woman. Or, they might look at a group of supernatural women. They may opt not to focus on specific women, but on a female element of the supernatural that is widely known, or that could be invented by the artist.
The content of discussions during the residency will be determined by the work undertaken by participants. Some participants might plan to produce deeply conceptual work. For others the process will be more practical. Others will work on a mixture of both.
“(of a manifestation or event) attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.””
The Igbo goddess Ala
Some of the questions that may arise for those incorporating supernatural women into their art practice:
Where did the stories of these women originate?
Who created supernatural narratives for women, and what was their purpose in doing so?
How do supernatural women relate to real women, in the past, present and future?
What are supernatural women made from? What shape, material, texture, colour and scale do they have? How do they sound and smell?
Prepare and deliver a ten-minute presentation of their work to fellow residents.
A virtual program allows those who cannot travel to take part. However, the residency is also a commitment, and shouldn’t be undertaken unless at least four-to-five hours per day can be set aside to attend meetings and move creative work forward.
Residency fees are by donation. All donations are considered income and we pay tax on them. The reason we ask for donations, rather than charging fees, is because it means that we can attract a more diverse group of artists.
If every participant were to pay €100 we would cover our running costs. But we realise that this will not be possible for every artist and we encourage them to apply regardless.
Those living in countries with lower per-capita GDP, those who are unemployed or those affected by low-incomes should feel comfortable giving less. If the people that can afford to give more choose to do so they will help us continue this model of inclusion into the future.

COMEL Award Contemporary Art: Aluminium Bonds
No man is an island, complete in himself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the whole. If even a sod were washed away from the sea, Europe would have a missing part, as if it lacked a promontory, as if a dwelling of your friends, or your own house, was missing. The death of any man diminishes me, because I am part of the mankind. So never ask who the bell rings for: it rings for you!
From "Meditation XVII", in John Donne, Devotions for emergency occasions (1624)
Never as in this period, the words of John Donne that exhort mankind to a greater solidarity, to a brotherhood especially in the darkest moments, can be a warning. Even more in this period the bonds between people, relationships, exchange and sharing are values to be kept in mind. This is the theme of the eighth edition of the COMEL Vanna Migliorin Contemporary Art Award: Aluminium Bonds.
Despite the period of uncertainty due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the COMEL Prize has opened its registration to provide European artists with a starting point for the future and to elicit a restart of all activities.
Aluminium Bonds has a figurative sense but also a scientific meaning (aluminium is a metal that lends itself to many alloys and in nature is never found alone) and a technical one: the invitation to the artists is to highlight this splendid metal among the other possible materials and through the different possible techniques.
All artists, aged 18 and over, who were born, live and / or work in each of the countries of the European continent are invited to register by October 31, 2020. Registration is free. All works of painting, sculpture, design, photography and installation in which aluminium will be the main material used, will be allowed to participate.
A jury of experts will select 13 finalist works, which will be exhibited in the final phase of the competition at the Spazio COMEL Arte Contemporanea in Latina, presumably in the first months of next year. The final dates will be established and communicated as soon as the European health situation permits.
Among the 13 finalists, the winner of the COMEL Prize will be decreed according to the judgment of the jury (who will win a prize of 3500 euros and a solo exhibition with dedicated catalog) and the winner of the Audience Award (who will always be the protagonist of a solo at the Spazio COMEL in Latina), chosen by the visitors of the exhibition, called to vote for their favorite works.

Usually, an action is initiated with a motive. We eat to get something into our system; whether the action is due to boredom or hunger, the result is what matters – food in our stomachs. It seems like every action has a consequence...or does it?
Is the lockdown making inactivity more significant?
Give us a shout, we would love to see your experiments and creative expressions. All mediums are welcome to be in the digital multimedia zine.
