ALIWALL - The Side Showcase
A Mural Design Competition

Want a chance to see your mural come alive in Kampong Glam –– one of Singapore’s most bustling art enclaves?

ALIWALL – The Side Showcase is an open call to young / aspiring street artists to submit your artwork and stand a chance to have your mural design blown up onto a side wall of Aliwal Arts Centre.  

Paint alongside Singapore’s prominent street art collective RSCLS! Under their mentorship, you’ll take over our side wall stroke by stroke –– and see your work come to life*! 

* Urban artworks are transient in nature, so the winning artwork will be maintained for a limited period of time on the wall.

The Twist:
Incorporate a QR Code into your design in the most creative way possible!

Arts House Limited, Aliwal Arts Centre and RSCLS will shortlist all ALIWALL – The Side Showcase submissions. One final mural winner will be selected through public voting (20%) and final judging (80%) by Arts House Limited, Aliwal Arts Centre and RSCLS.
