Murals as Vibrant Inspiration

The Community Boardworx Project aims to foster community spirit, learning through the arts, skills development, artistic expression and also a sense of pride and accomplishment. Within the theme of education, participating youths were encouraged to share their reasons on the importance of learning. The youths were asked to write on a thought wall "Why we learn". Selected responses were discussed and text was added to the mural. Beyond their artistic contributions to the boards, the youth are also given the chance to draw, write creatively, and even explore photography throughout the project.
