A team of local and international artists are seeking funding to paint murals in the Balata Refugee Camp [West Bank, Palestine]. We have put lots of love and intention into the project, and now we need your support on the final step.
Beautify Balata is an Art Initiative sponsored by registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit Beyond Us & the Yaffa Cultural Center inside Balata. The project is simple but immensely impactful: Paint the Walls of the largest refugee camp in Palestine with beautiful art murals from professional street artists, Local and International.
Through collaborative, participatory public art-making, our initiative will promote healing, self-expression, and community experience by giving the children of Balata refugee camp a voice through art. Give a voice to the voiceless in the community, and allow them to paint their own reality.
The project features children being guided by artists to make a mural of their own, such as one of all their hands with names. The project will also feature educational workshops to the children of Balata and lectures to artists in the community, provided by local and international artists.
HOW WILL THIS HELP?
