Paint it Up 2012

Crime Prevention Ottawa in partnership with the City of Ottawa is launching the third year of the Paint It Up! youth engagement mural program.

Funding is available for outdoor mural projects that support graffiti prevention, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods through youth empowerment and community arts. 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.
