Engaging youth through mural arts

For four weeks in Summer 2015, David Burke was in Vientiane, Laos, where he facilitated community workshops for youth to learn more about how public murals can be used to address social challenges. Workshop participants were invited to propose and implement mural concepts and other public art project concepts that relate to environmental health in Laos. i:cat Gallery hosted the program, including workshops, production events, and final exhibition of the community-driven work.
