We are delighted to announce that Spring Fling Rural Mural (SFRM) will be back in 2024. This time with a mural in Wigtownshire. 

Spring Fling Rural Mural was launched in 2014 to huge acclaim and appreciation. The project saw 11 artists collaborate to produce numerous large murals across Dumfries & Galloway on buildings, vehicles and unusual objects.  

In 2016, the project returned, this time bringing an international element. Three artists from D&G collaborated with 3 national/international street artists to produce 6 murals: three in D&G and one each in Glasgow, Newcastle and Berlin. 

The project is run by Upland CIC, in association with Spring Fling Open Studios, our flagship event. Associated projects and activities such as public art, exhibitions, and pop-up events are delivered in association with the open studios event to add value, develop our audiences, and bring something new!

You can find out about these previous years here 

This year, we mark 10 years since the inception of SFRM and do so by reaching out to our local communities and painting 1 large mural in the town of Stranraer, 10 years since we painted a mural in the town.  

Once again we are working with Recoat, the Glasgow-based street art specialists, to deliver both the mural and the series of community engagement activities. This year, our partnership with Creative Stranraer aims to establish the project in Wigtownshire, ensuring meaningful community engagement, connecting with the vibrant ongoing plans in Stranraer, and making sure that the mural painted complements the existing mural in Stranraer.
