Based in Seattle, this program engages mid-level juvenile offenders in the beautification of the town through a painting of murals. It gives them the opportunity to not only earn wages and repay court ordered restitution to their victims, but also develop friendships and take on empowering roles.

Rex Cinema, abandoned movie theater

Filmmaker and artist Akosua Adoma Owusu came up with a project to reopen the REX Cinema as a “Ghanaian arts hub for artists working across media, across the nation, the continent, and the diaspora”. She turned to crowdfunding as opposed to any other form of supporting the realization of this project.
