“You see your life in this mural. I see my life cycle.” – Mural Participant


Empowerment begins to occur when participants feel and see that their voices are heard, validated, and deemed important. Urban Brushfire murals projects involve the community in every part of the mural making process, from design to implementation, which means that participants feel ownership of the mural and its design. It is a reflection of their work, their ideas, and their presence.
