Providing a wall for a community mural project is an incredible way for foundations, non-profits, corporations, and even individuals to contribute to your local neighborhood.
WXLLSPACE thrives upon donations of wall space for our artists. It’s a major way to support our work, and the work of artists, at no cost to you.
Through your donation of a wall, you contribute to your neighborhood’s “curb appeal”, by offering a public platform for youth empowerment, community dialogue, and connections among residents and visitors alike.
Volunteering a wall to WXLLSPACE for the potential of a community mural is easy, and we take care of the legwork. Once we’re notified that a community program requires a wall, and it’s a match, we’ll get in touch. Please note that the donation of a wall doesn’t guarantee a mural, or give any timelines. It just lets us know that there’s space available on your building should we need it, and lets art come to you at no additional cost.
Creating Dynamic Partnerships Is Key To Our Success, And Yours.
Every WXLLSPACE mural involves a truly unique, beautiful, and transformative process guided by the vision of our youth, community partners, and artists combined. Ensuring every project is a successful collaboration means we are only able to select partners who can commit to what we feel are necessary pieces of the puzzle.
Are you a foundation, non-profit, corporation or individual that wants to fund a project?
One major way to support WXLLSPACE’s work is through the donation of a wall. Through their donation, wall owners contribute to their neighborhoods by offering a public platform for youth empowerment and community dialogue.
Volunteers donate walls to WXLLSPACE’s free of charge for the potential of a community mural. WXLLSPACE will be in touch should a community mural program require a wall, and should it be a match. Please note that the donation of a wall does not guarantee a mural.
