Community murals help to brighten and enrich public spaces and give people a sense of ownership, pride and commitment to their community. They also have the effect of making public places more attractive and less prone to vandalism.
Benefits of community mural projects include:
- reduction and control of graffiti at specific community locations;
- enhanced understanding of the roles and values of community groups in each location; and
- reduction of vandalism to community assets.
