The goals of the Mural Mission are to democratize the arts providing art programs to the underserved multi-ethnic inner-city communities outside of normal school hours in a variety of community and global settings. The project strives to expose the youth to highly trained and recognized arts professionals through residencies and artist exchanges encouraging the youth to learn as active participants through a multidisciplinary arts process. The mural process acts as a tool and foundation for arts learning while mobilizing the youth to take an active role in their communities locally and abroad. Though an interdisciplinary approach involving community art making and technology, the youth can utilize areas of communication, language, writing, history and research creating a rich learning experience. Through the power of public art, bridging the gap between arts and culture, the Mission Mural seeks to act as a cultural arts resource for youth development involving the youth as participants in the civic process thus creating a more understanding and tolerant society.
