Join the team for a Mia and Hope Community Summer Youth Mural Project

This summer we will create an original collaborative mural in Phillips/Whittier. Participants will translate their ideas and stories into visual art, create a collective design about themes that matter to them, and paint it into a new public mural. We will develop design and mural painting techniques, messaging, and explore how the power of public art can impact our communities. No mural or art experience necessary. This is a paid position.

  • Between 14-19 years old
  • Connected to the Phillips/ Whittier neighborhoods (live, work, school, etc)
  • Passionate about sharing stories
  • Interested in public art & their communities
  • Able to work independently & with others

Time commitment and dates:

Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1:30pm- 4:30pm
