Crime Prevention Ottawa, in partnership with the City of Ottawa, offers funding for outdoor mural projects that support graffiti prevention, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods. The Paint it Up! Program empowers youth through community arts.
How it works
Funded 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.
Our 2012 projects are underway. Stay tuned for our call for projects in spring 2013. For information about Paint it Up!, please see the program guidelines. You may also want to consult our report on the successful 2011 projects.
