Agency: Mercy Corps
This project connects both Syrian refugee youths and Turkish youths to enhance life skills through art. The participants of the program will create their own individual paintings. They will then decide together which elements to use and will create two murals within the community under the guidance of 2 artists, one Syrian and one Turkish. The murals will be painted on the Mercy Corp’s community center as well as another local building in the area. The murals will then be put on display to the public and photographs will be shared through local media reports.
