PUBLIC ART & MURALS:

'Journey to home'

Youth participants and the artists who worked together all have incredible stories, and collectively created a new story that goes beyond the project, helping to lift the veil on youth housing insecurity.

PUBLIC ART & MURALS:

'The Color Of Your Voice'

The Porch Light Initiative situates art and human connection at the heart of recovery, resilience, and healing in distressed Philadelphia neighborhoods. We partner with behavioral health clinics around the city to create transformational public art with those who receive services for mental health challenges, substance use, trauma, and other behavioral health issues.
