Mural Art Contest: Call for Submissions

The North End Community Health Centre is seeking young (19 -34) artists (self taught or trained) of African Nova Scotian or Indigenous descent for an exciting new mural project to be completed in 2021, marking the 50th Anniversary of our clinic.

Theme: North End Community Health Centre is deeply rooted in the North End of Halifax. We wish to celebrate our past, present and future connection to the African Nova Scotian and Indigenous communities with a mural that highlights this bond and our history in the community. The overall theme should project a positive feeling with some elements that focus on health, caring and wellness.

Submission details: Artists are asked to submit a written proposal that includes:

  • A description of your personal connection to the North End community;
  • A discussion of the style you intend to use and your vision of the mural;
  • A sample of your work; and
  • A mock-up of your intended design should also be included, in whatever medium and size you prefer.

The unique architectural elements of the space should be considered and incorporated into the design. This is our waiting room … waiting to be transformed!

A cash prize will be awarded for the winning entry; all supplies will be provided.

Your art will become a permanent piece of North End history!

Deadline for submissions: December 9th, 2020. 

Proposals to be dropped off at North End Community Health Center, attention Ashley and labeled “Mural Art Contest.”


If you would like to see the space in person to get a better sense of a project, we can arrange a time for you to come in. To arrange a time, or for further info please email and a staff person will connect with you.
