Space activation and mural art project by Bangla Hub Inc.
This was a wonderful project partnership with Campelltown City Council, which involved the local artists from Australian CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) community. On the opening gala we introduced and engaged the local community members, family, and friends though an art competition and exhibition and at the end, we together were proud to create 70 meters long street art on the footpath and 7 square meters mural painting on the walls at Erica Lane, Minto. The “Light up the Lane” represented a common voice of the CALD societies, however, they expressed themselves in their own way; the concept focused on developing cultural empathy among the community and knowing each other to make a harmony among the diverse and cultural divides.
Campbelltown City Council received the Community Spirit and Inclusion Award for this project from Keep Australia Beautiful NSW.
