The Nelson International Mural Festival will not only host a myriad of creators and musicians in celebration of the arts and community – but they will also host workshops (live and digital) throughout the fest that are free, open-level and utterly engaging.  Pre-registration is a must.

From the musical odyssey of body percussion, to the art of story-telling, to the practice of yoga – these workshops allow people to expand their knowledge, foster their interests, and to come together as a community.  BC’s funk and soul dynamo, the incredibly talented Dawn Pemberton, will be hosting a virtual gathering that is sure to inspire and bring joy via the movement of the body in making music. 

The enigmatic Damian John (an acclaimed creator, graphic novelist, and artist) will be sharing ways to tell key stories through art – and Beatchild (the prolific musician, producer and designer) will be hosting a webinar on the workings of crafting a song that represents you and your creativity in powerful ways. 

With many others to choose from, these workshops will continue to build upon the celebration of art, community and coming together.

About The Nelson Mural Festival
Cultural vibrancy in Nelson continues to flourish under the festival’s engagement of street artists, muralists, creators, and art enthusiasts joining the festival from the local, national, and international art scene. Through large scale public artworks, educational opportunities, and by animating the public sphere with reflections of local cultures, histories, and stories, the NDAC furthers and fortifies collaboration amongst artists, businesses, and community members. The festival is inclusive of all cultures, genders, ages, and abilities. The NDAC strives to create a barrier-free festival by hosting all events at accessible public spaces and offering all events and activities free of charge.

About Nelson District Arts Council
