THE STORY:

GET READY TO #OPENYOURWALLS...AGAIN!

The Paint Jamaica project started in July 2014 when a group of Jamaican artists and a French traveler got together and decided to bring art into the streets of Kingston in unexpected ways and in unexpected places. The idea at heart was to change and revolutionize the relationship between art, talent and society. However, along with creative expression, Paint Jamaica had a greater social cause which was to change the negative stigma around Kingston's inner cities. With this vision in mind, the team embarked on a ten day project of beautifying the walls of a gigantic abandoned warehouse at 41 Fleet Street in Parade Gardens- an inner city that few Kingstonians had been to, yet even heard of.

For over a month, prior to bringing brush-to-wall, the Paint Jamaica team had been connecting with the residents of Parade Gardens to understand their aspirations. This feedback translated into dazzling murals with positive and uplifting messages designed by talented artists who rolled in from all over Kingston...

Paint Jamaica thus grew and evolved into a movement of democratic art and as a true community project, engaging volunteers of all backgrounds and the residents of Parade Gardens. Hand in hand, they transformed an abandoned space into a new street art landmark: 41 Fleet Street.

 

PAINT JAMAICA IS BACK... AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!


Seeing the positive impact this first project was able to deliver, we are now moving onto our second initiative which promises to be just as exciting and uplifting as the first.

But we need YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS A REALITY.

How? Donate towards this crowdrise or mobilize and organize your own fundraiser for Paint Jamaica.

THANK YOU & LET'S MAKE THIS DREAM BECOME A REALITY, TOGETHER!
