Vancouver Mural Festival 2020
Site Management with VMF 2020 was AWESOME!
To my great relief and excitement, in June of 2020 I was contacted by the Production Manager at Vancouver Mural Festival, asking if I'd be interested to work with them as a Site Manager for a 2-month contract, a part of their Production team. I said yes 100%: I absolutely LOVE murals and had been wanting to get involved more with VMF, so this was perfect. The pandemic had subsided a bit, the work would be mostly outdoors anyways... Yay!
The work of a site manager in this case was all about supporting the muralists on the ground, including neighbor relations, site access with various aerial lifts as needed, image transfer assistance with projectors sometimes, and helping to paint if needed. I had a fantastic time, and I really liked the culture of the VMF organization and leadership. Can't say enough good stuff!
