UQAM considers keeping graffiti from student demonstrations

March 22, 2013

The Université du Québec à Montréal is considering keeping artwork and writings scrawled on its hallway walls during last spring's student demonstrations. A UQAM spokeswoman says there is a divide in the community between those who want the drawings to stay and those who want them removed. "We want to submit the ideas to our community to make sure that they want to keep the graffiti." The spokeswoman says there are only about 10 walls in 30 campus buildings that are painted over. She notes there is one building on campus where students are permitted to paint on the walls. CBC
