The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and Emily Carr University of Art and Design have come started a relationship regarding graffiti. They have come together to allow a dozen art students to showcase their art on electrical boxes in the city. Their designs are printed onto vinyl and are then showcased on the boxes for two years. Since this has started, graffiti on the boxes in the area has decreased by 50%. This is due to mutual respect amongst artists. They all know not to cover or deface other art.
