Join BUMP in Transforming Calgary

The Beltline Urban Murals Project (BUMP) is an award-winning community driven initiative transforming the centre of Calgary, Alberta into an expansive open air art gallery with over 100 murals by local, national and international artists since 2017. Led by the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association (BNA), the project celebrates the diversity, talent and vibrant character of the city through works of art that are thought-provoking, whimsical, awe-inspiring, creative and powerful. In 2021, BUMP commissioned 60+ new murals across 8 different neighbourhoods and hosted 20+ music events during our month-long BUMP Festival. 

An Empowering Work Environment

BUMP is operated by a small but mighty, close knit team of art enthusiasts and advocates who are always ready to roll up our sleeves to make things happen. We value and expect respectful communication, different perspectives and experiences, collaboration to achieve goals and a team environment where many hands make strong work. We get together when solving problems and share in the celebration of our team’s successes. 

Our headquarters are located at the historic McHugh House Community and Arts Hub centrally located at the heart of the city on the corner of 17 Avenue and Centre Street S. Along with plenty of office space, we offer the opportunity for hybrid work from home or around town through a fully cloud-based environment.
