Leading The Next Generation of Leaders


Each Groundswell mural follows a beautiful, transformative process, guided by the vision of our youth, artists, and community partners.


To ensure that every Groundswell project is a successful collaboration, we look for artists who are:


  1. Committed to our process.
    • Do you understand the importance of youth development?
    • Do you have flexibility for change throughout the process?

  2. Aligned with our mission.
    • Are you willing to address and combat racism on internalized, interpersonal, institutional, and systemic levels?
    • Are you willing to collaborate on art that is explicitly social justice centered?

  3. Authentically invested in their community.
    • Do you demonstrate love for your community?
    • Can you identify what impact collaboratively created art will have in your community?


Does this sound like you?
