August 19, 2021 - September 25, 2021

We are so excited about our new mural map that we’re inviting everyone on to take a tour.

With almost 50 murals on the map, there’s a lot of ground to cover. That’s why we’re teaming up with someone who knows all about incredible public art in western Canada. Linda Hoang is going to host our series of summer tours (Linda hosted our Instagrammable Walls tour last summer). And Paths for People is partnering with us to bring some scooter-power to a pair of the tours, thanks to e-scooters provided by Spin.

There are four tours to choose from:

  • Thursday, August 19, 2021 – 6 p.m. – Walking Tour & Food Crawl
  • Saturday, August 28, 2021 – 1 p.m. – Scooter Tour
  • Wednesday, September 8, 2021 – 6 p.m. – Walking Tour & Food Crawl
  • Saturday, September 25, 2021 – 1 p.m. Scooter Tour

Each tour has a maximum of 15 spots.

  • The Walking Tour & Food Crawl is $25 per person, and each participant gets:
    • A take-home polaroid at a mural of their choice 
    • A mural map postcard 
    • 3 food/snack stops

  • The  Scooter Tour is $20 per person, each participant gets:

Edmonton is in Treaty Six Territory, which is a traditional meeting ground, gathering place and traveling route for the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries. As we work to a better understanding of truth and continue to work towards reconciliation, the way we perceive, design, and move through our community will change. We look forward to that process and to learning more as we go. As part of ongoing acts of reconciliation, 20% of all ticket sales will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society

These are physically-distanced outdoor walks and scooter tours with a maximum of 15 public participants. Participants are encouraged to maintain distance from those outside of their household. Masks are encouraged. Food items will all be take-out, but please note that some businesses are asking customers to wear masks inside. In the event of Covid-related cancellation, dates may be rescheduled or cancelled. Refunds will be issued if the event is cancelled.
