As rates of violence increase in some of our most troubled neighborhoods, the Mural Arts Program in partnership with DBHIDS continues to work within communities to grapple with the issues of violence and trauma among youth. Through We Rise! Children, Trauma, and Resilience, we acknowledge that young people’s experience of and involvement with violence leave a lasting impact on themselves and this city as a whole. This project aims to have viewers and project participants see themselves as survivors, not victims, and produce a final work of art that recognizes the the pain and deeply embedded trauma of those who experience violence while illuminating the resilience that exists among all of us.
