Hub City Walls is Nanaimo’s mural festival.

Launched in August 2020, this distinctive event will grow Nanaimo’s public art inventory with beautiful and unique murals, and celebrate urban art and culture with the community.

Hub City Walls was created by Humanity In Community and builds on the success of their 2018 Urban Art Gallery and Open Art Wall projects. The festival will showcase diverse styles and creativity in the form of permanent, accessible wall murals and invite emerging, amateur and professional artists to participate.

    Colour meets community in a celebration of street art.
