StreetWise: Hunts Point


Groundswell Community Mural Project from ArtsFwd on Vimeo.

With support from the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, Groundswell partners with The Majora Carter Group to engage youth, artists, and other community members in the identification of transportation-related concerns in the South Bronx and recommendation of design, signage, and policy solutions with the NYC Department of Transportation.

This two-year campaign uses a series of community mural-making projects to engage community members in identifying and prioritizing transportation and related-environmental concerns in their South Bronx community. Through StreetWise, Groundswell inspires community members to envision a better community, implement short-term streetscape solutions, and secure a commitment for the realization of longer-term transportation solutions. Ultimately, this project will empower ongoing activism among artist, youth, and community stakeholders and provide a model for other communities to use art as a tool for social change.
