Over the last ten years, large  art works have become a very popular tool for organizations, artists, cities and even governments to create contact and momentum with a community and it's inhabitants. The academy aims to research methodologies, effects and best practices for community art projects in order to create blueprints for impactful projects and share this with the world. 

The Favela Painting Academy wants to have a look at what happens ‘behind the colored walls’. We feel the responsibility to go deeper than the –literally- superficial artwork on the surface. We want to learn from the experience and leave a legacy behind – one that can be shared with the rest of the world. We are currently creating a platform, that gathers and shares all this knowledge, more coming soon!
