Building creativity and community in Lower Price Hill: Mural project

BLOC Ministries has a mission of bringing hope to west side urban neighborhoods.  They do that through educational and enriching programs for students and adults and mentoring relationships which are strengthened because all staff live in the same community where they serve.  A Dater grant supported BLOC’s Phase 2 of a mural project in the Lower Price Hill (LPH) community.  Local middle and high school students brainstormed ideas and learned techniques to create colorful and inspirational murals.  A team of students and community members helped an artist paint two murals to brighten their neighborhood as well as a smaller piece inside the LPH BLOC Arts Center.  An informal party celebrating all the good things happening in their neighborhood was held to culminate the program.  The themes of ‘Hope for the Future’ and ‘Unity’ continue to inspire the hundreds that pass the works of art every week.
