On-Site Community Mural
An on-site community mural is a collaborative art project created at a specific location, where community members actively participate in the design and painting process, resulting in a mural that embodies their shared values, stories, and aspirations.
WHY should you consider engaging your community in creating your mural?
It can foster a sense of unity and belonging by engaging people to be active in the community.
It can empower local voices by stepping in and contributing input on message and ideas.
It can beautify shared spaces celebrating cultural diversity and promoting local history and identity.
It can strengthen community bonds.
It can document history by offering a tangible, lasting testament to collective endeavors and aspirations.
HOW is it done?
A community mural emerges from a collaborative journey that begins with consultations and engagement sessions, ensuring the mural reflects the ideas, stories, and visions of the community. Once a shared vision is established, artists create preliminary designs, refining them based on feedback. The chosen site is then prepped, with walls cleaned and primed, ready to become a canvas. In the heart of the process, professional artists facilitate painting sessions to community members, transforming ideas into vibrant visuals. The project culminates in a celebration, as the community comes together to unveil their collective masterpiece.
