Festival Inspire transforms the cityscape for 7 days into a visual wonderland with murals and live art, interactive installations, projection mapping, street performance, circus, music, and stuff not even we have thought of yet.Their murals stick around even longer, building a legacy of character, culture, and beauty.
The Festival creates a proactive culture of art in public spaces in Downtown Moncton. Dynamic murals replace dull walls that were subject to vandalism or ‘tagging’, neglect or despair. Everything is created in high traffic, high visibility areas to be experienced by the largest audience possible, and in derelict or vacant urban spaces for the purpose of reactivating those spaces. By creating a collaboration between local businesses, artists, community organizations and residents, the organization offers long lasting character, energy and beauty, economic growth and prosperity to the City.
Following a seriously successful first year in June 2015, and an incredible edition in 2016, we are coming back by popular demand for summer 2017.
