Mural Art

Putting pen to paper to try creative writing, storytelling and spoken word techniques.

The mural workshop series was designed by Haleh for people who wanted to try something new, express themselves through art and learn how to create mural art.

The effects of the restrictions introduced in social care during 2020 in response to COVID-19 was substantial. The social distancing made us think about the external boundaries of our bodies. What constitutes a safe distance when it comes to the spread of COVID-19? One meter or two? This project helped participants to process these topics and create their own interpretations as collaborative large scale murals experimenting with various painting and collage techniques.

Each part of the final piece was inspired by a personal memory or symbolic tale on a number of themes.
