The Rochester Mural Festival is run on the blood, sweat and tears of a group of enthusiastic and passionate locals who love fostering connections in the community through the arts.
But the festival is about much more than just the art – each year we aim to promote inclusion, co-operation, health and wellbeing in our small community.
But we can’t do it without your help.
As we all know, the blood, sweat and tears of a few can only go so far.
If you’d love to get on board and help out in the community we are always looking for volunteers who can:
· Prepare the mural boards
· Help during the days of the festival, with tasks such as setting up and packing up each day.
. Help Festival artists with their needs.
. Make visitors to our Festival feel welcome.
. Host an artist.
And of course, if you don’t have the time but would still love to contribute, financial donations (big or small!) go a long way to help us cover prizes, infrastructure and materials.
Each year we have needed around $20,000 to run the event.
· A donation of $50 allows us to compensate one judge
· A donation of $100 allows us to purchase one paint colour
· A donation of $1000 allows us to pay for half our mural boards
We welcome your support in any way. Please get in touch via our contact page if you’d like to get involved.
