Intergenerational Street Art Project

Intergenerational Street Art Project

16 year 11 and 12 Narrabundah College Visual Arts were selected to partake in an Intergenerational Street Art Project. The street art project was a collaboration between ACT Government and Narrabundah College. The project involved students working with 10 older community members (+55 years old) and 10 year 9 students from Caroline Chisolm School all learning and working together. Two young female professional artists Faith Kerehona and Bohie Palacek were selected by a panel to lead the project to guide participants through a process to create a street art mural. All participants were involved in the design process and the final design was striking and fitting for the chosen location. The location of project was the Narrabundah 2 Pavillion at the Sporting field across the road from Narrabundah College (on Captain Cook Crescent, Narrabundah). It was a huge project with 235msq of wall space having to be painted! This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to make connections with the local community. Their maturity and stamina throughout the project was admirable.
