We’re passionate about programs that contrbute to communities, improve well-being – and make the world just that little bit more beautiful to look at.

MURAL IN A BOX
Mural In A Box is a one-stop-shop resource kit with everything schools and community groups need to install a mural with their participants– without the need for an artist to visit the physical location. Mural In A Box’s mural templates are designed by street artists which means groups don’t need specialist painting or drawing skills to run this activity. The program was designed during COVID lockdown to benefit both artists and schools and community groups in regional and remote areas. More here
