Empowering underprivileged young people through training and job opportunities in mural painting
Sponsored by the SIE Fund in 2017, the prototype project "Art Muraler" was concluded with satisfactory results. Riding on its success, 2Bliss Studio Limited (one of its co-founders being the project owner of Art Muraler) rolls out a start-up project to help young people who are unemployed, rehabilitated or ex-drug abusers enhance their self-confidence, creativity, employability and sociability through a series of training in art, design and mural painting.
The training comprises theory and practicum courses. After receiving training, the disadvantaged young people will provide mural painting services to beautify living environment for grassroots elderly households. They will also work as workshop tutors to teach elderly people and students with special education needs skills in art.
Young people will be benefited in various ways. Through taking part in painting services and workshops, they will be able to apply their art skills and communicate with others. Some can even obtain construction industry-related certificate after completion of training and have their career path broadened. Revenue will be generated from mural painting services. Artworks will also be uploaded to the website for sale. Part of the revenue from sale will be shared with the painters.
