Art Campaign for a better future of El Salvador

Empowering the next generation of ES through Art

This project focuses on addressing the social impact of gang violence in certain communities by transforming spaces through art and community engagement.

Two communities heavily affected by gang activity will be selected as the sites for "Wall of Hope" (Pared de Esperanza) murals, Flags & T-Shirt Paintings which will serve as symbols of resilience, healing, and transformation.

Local artists and residents will be actively involved in the creation of the murals, working alongside professional artists and volunteers to design and paint vibrant artworks that reflect the communities aspirations and strengths

El Zonte

El Zonte

El Zonte is a special place where kids get inspired by Surf. This community was affected by Gangs.

El Zonte offers a colorful landscape; cliffs and tongues of rock that reach into the sea, frame its limits. There are two beaches of black volcanic sand, separated by the river and its small estuary. While some interesting caves in the western sector of the beach are the perfect setting for a photograph. 

 

Floracion Foundation with the help of Local Artists and the NGO Art Helps, with the help of local kids will create a Mural of Hope (Esperanza Wall) outside of Escuela Libre.

Escuela Libre founded with the goal of community enrichment through education and art, originating in El Zonte, El Salvador. EZAL manages and provides fiscal sponsorship for Prescuela Libre El Zonte, supports a community homeschooling project, provides English ESL classes for local kids, art workshops and give support to organizations or focal groups that provide social support to communities.

El Palmarcito

El Palmarcito

Ocean Corner Beach Club, this wall is perfectly located at the entrance of the Palmarcito, so that will give a warm welcome to this community. In recent years, the beach El Palmarcito has been gaining popularity as a tourist and surfing destination.

Traditionally this beach hasn’t been much visited since it is mainly occupied by Gangs. As time has gone by, it has been attracting more and more national and foreign tourists as well as surfers, as well as the opportunities of houses for rent, restaurants, and other types of services, especially out on the road.

El Palmarcito Beach has a quiet, relaxing, and tranquil atmosphere, surrounded by tropical nature and volcanic sand.
