Following in the footsteps of HamiltonCommunity Identity
(Manhattan - 2017)
CITYarts’ Following in the Footsteps of Hamilton mural project, will engage youth of New York City’s Hamilton neighborhood to gain a sense of purpose in their lives through history and art making. Luke Bolton, the head of the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program, a program aimed at assisting youth on developing their own innate capacities and being involved in the community, and Hamilton Grange Middle School teacher, reached out to CITYarts to involve his students in a productive project to improve their neighborhood. This project supports a sense of ownership among community members, offering an opportunity to make their neighborhood a better place, starting with the shared public space of the playground.
