Welcome to an explosion of colours at our international show promoting collective art as a tool to raise the voices of those often silenced
Muralism is a movement with strong roots in many parts of the world. A variety of initiatives are starting up in Sweden in which the collective production of mural art is used to empower socio-economically vulnerable communities. Based on residents’ own ideas, carried out through the engagement of the community, and visible in the public walls of the city, a collective mural art process gives pride to the community and a feeling that local residents, too, can be a force for social change.
In an attempt to initiate a discussion on the power of collective mural art, we have invited some of the most interesting voices on mural painting from around the world. They will share their experiences from years of organising, painting and writing about murals. Join us and discuss our efforts towards a more colourful world at Arkitekt- och designcentrum at the 13th of February 2014.
A more colourful world is possible!
