Are you an Artist or landowner looking to create a mural in the City of Stirling?

Murals are a great way to bring colour and life to empty walls, floors, fences and utility infrastructure. They can tell stories, highlight social issues, provide commentary, create a sense of place or simply bring beauty to a location where there was none.

Before you get started on your mural project, there some things to consider. Read the City’s handy Mural Guide to find out more.

Upcoming commissions and programs

The City of Stirling has a number of programs that offer opportunities for Artists throughout the year. To make sure you are the first to know about these and other opportunities sign up to our newsletter.
