HOPE Murals JDC

HOPE Murals JDC, provides adolescent youth, who are currently detained at the Miami Dade county Juvenile Detention Center, with an interactive Art-Based-Youth-Development experience of creative expression via an urban arts visual platform. Our vision is to transform the dull, meek, intimidating, weather battered institutional walls of the JDC, that represent punishment and confinement for the youth who reside there, to a gallery of beautiful, artistic, motivational canvases. These transformed walls, filled with inspirational images, symbols and words intended to serve as catalyst for ALL to 'self-reflect', and provoke the critical thought process that lies within, to challenge oneself to examine 'Where am I', 'Where have I come from' and 'Where do I want to go', once my life continues beyond the bars.
