Context. Coming back from India, where I stayed seven monthes, my hometown appeard so monotoneous and so grey. Montreuil is a direct suburb of Paris and it has one of the highest percentage of inhabitants registered as artists in the entire country. It also has a strong cultural relation with the hip hop movement and graffiti in particular.
Action. I want citizens of Montreuil to be able to get out of their house, paint their city in a warm frame and meet their neighbors this way. I launched a platform in which you can upload a picture of a wall you’d like to have painted, then you can chose an artist and ask for collaboration. It is online since one year now :
Observation. The platform is still not functionnal the way I want it to be, and I really understand that the physical network (people talking to each other) is more efficient at the moment. We are often called for events, which I take as time and energy investments for the future.
