Global Art Project Turns Slums Into Creative Hubs

Brilliant! Have you seen this article? Huffington Post published an article featuring the work of an organization called the Outsiders Krew. 

The Outsiders Krew is now helping stop discrimination against people in slums and other marginalized communities from Kathmandu to the Calais “Jungle”, by transforming makeshift dwellings into sprawling, outdoor art exhibits. Whether or not you view graffiti as art or vandalism, the Outsiders Krew is beautifying “the struggle” in low-income neighborhoods and empowering locals with a simple formula.

This is the type of program that always inspires me, it proves that change is possible, that positivity and creativity can overcome so many things and as in this article, can turn even the most poverty stricken neighborhoods into hubs of possibility. 

Have a look at some of the murals that have been created with the assistance of the Outsiders Krew. What do you think? Have you seen other inspiring projects? Tell us about it in the comments below. 

I'm looking forward to following the Outsiders Krew's progress on Instagram. While you're checking them out, why not follow Integrated Creative Therapy on Instagram as well!
