A mural workshop to design and create a community mural in Madrid, October 2009.
I worked with over 100 local residents in a three day visual arts workshop. The aim was to involve residents in the creative process for a 90 meter long community mural. Designs and narratives produced by residents were incorporated into the mural in order to create a sense of ownership. Residents also took part in painting the mural.
The image above shows a section of the wall dedicated to "portraits". Over 90 portraits were created over the three day workshop that I led.
