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.
