Solid Projects is about building community through art. Through site-specific murals and exhibitions, we want to create and promote art that reflects a solid ambition, resolve and identity. From street art to museums, art tells the story of who we are and who we want to be.


Solid Projects is about presence. It is about tangible thought and archived experience. Amidst the continuous motion that defines our modern condition, Solid Projects aims to give the opportunity to pause, observe and engage through exhibitions and events and an exchange of dialogue and perspectives. 


Our goal in 2021 is to use art to heal, to connect and to empower during this time of renewal and change. We will work to connect people with art and artists with opportunities. From group exhibitions to commissioned murals and exhibitions, we will work closely with partnering organisations to bring art into places of engagement.
