FESTIVAL INSPIRE: NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA
June 7 - July 31
Festival Inspire was first founded in 2014, and, in that year, transformed the walls of Downtown Moncton. Creative murals adorned derelict walls that had been vandalised, beautifying those areas that were the unappreciated canvases of high-traffic areas in the city. The mission is to reactivate those spaces and encourage collaboration between businesses and artists.
This year, the festival reaches further. As well as the week-long frenzy of live art, murals, interactive installations, circus, street performance, and art in Downtown Moncton, the festival is travelling to Campbellton, Shippagan Tracadie, Miramichi, Saint John, Petit-Rocher, and Shediac throughout June and July.
