“We don’t work from a deficit type of a model, we work from a model that people bring strengths and if we, together, can figure out what those strengths are and some passions behind it then that’s how they’re able to take ownership inside of the work that we do with them.”

Power of Vision Mural Project challenges Hope to think about art as a tool for leadership and community building in addition to strengthening artistic skills. Each mural is driven by a collective vision centered in community. Since 2004, Hope youth have worked across differences around the common goal of completing murals symbolizing community, understanding and hope.
