The ‘Can Do!’ initiative was a massive vision to transform the torn and battered canvasses of our struggling communities into rich, colourful pictures of a collective hope.
This was an intergenerational project, mobilising everyone to work together to recreate their living environment. Improving the physical fabric of a community is proven to have a positive impact on the lives of local people.
We had many people joining us in ‘painting it positive’ across the schools, subways, parks and council estates of Cardiff.
The project worked with the principle of everyone putting their hands in their pockets, as well as funding from grants and awards, to pay for the paint and everyone grabbing a brush and painting the area.
We worked with many schools and youth groups as well as local police and community groups all across Cardiff.
