ONE WALL MOVEMENT is a large-scale mural initiative that centers the voices and talents of muralists, writers, and street artists who self-identify as BIPOC, PGM, women, femmes, trans, nonbinary, and/or gender non-conforming. Taking inspiration from Nas’ hit “One Mic,” ONE WALL MOVEMENT was developed to provide public visual artists with a canvas to work freely and create an organic reflection of their lived experiences rather than set restrictions on their subject matter.

ONE WALL MOVEMENT is a joint initiative between Hi-ARTS and Curator Ayana Ayo. Recognizing the importance of art and design and their contributions to public spaces, ONE WALL MOVEMENT aims to center the voices of often marginalized and underrepresented artists by commissioning and supporting them to produce large-scale public murals.

ONE WALL MOVEMENT submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Submissions received after January 2, 2023, will be reviewed in the 2024 cycle
