The ‘’Colour in your Community’’ project is inspired by the unique creative spirit of the communities in Galway City and the people that make them special. The project will run in three locations throughout the city that have been identified as experiencing social deprivation. Mural locations will be chosen for their visibility within communities to ensure that passer-by’s and residents alike can enjoy the benefits of community artwork. Mural artists will host consultation three workshops within the communities to identify ideas and inspiration for their community mural.
As part of this consultation process, members of community groups and organisations will be invited to share their perspectives and ideas for visually and creatively representing the culture and presence of older people, young people and the travelling community. A final proposal will be approved by stakeholders before artists begin their creative process. Colourful, meaningful community murals will act as a visual reminder of the strength and diversity of the people who form it as well as acting to mitigate anti-social behaviours and attract visitors to the areas. Interested parties can confirm their attendance to consultation workshops by contacting the Healthy Galway City Coordinator or local Community Development workers.
