“Being in that space and being able to not only create new relationships, but learning how to facilitate a conversation was huge for me because I never had the opportunity. Just the experience of having the opportunity to do something about the many issues that I care about and a community that, that is really supporting and honest and accountable and wise has been a gift.”

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.
