Groundswell: Inspiring Community Mural Project, New York

In 1996, a group of New York City artists, educators, and activists founded Groundswell based on the belief that there is something unique and powerful about the collaborative artmaking process. This process combines the sanctity of personal expression with the strength of community activism.

Groundswell’s programs are based on principles of individual, group, and community development. Collaborating with communities, we strive to physically and mentally build up the individual, group, and community during the making of the mural or other artwork.
Groundswell brings together artists, youth, and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change. Our projects beautify neighborhoods, engage youth in societal and personal transformation, and give expression to ideas and perspectives that are underrepresented in the public dialogue.
