Palmitas’ Transformation, Mexico

by | Oct 9, 2015 | Americas, North America

A youth organisation, ‘German Crew’ has joined forces with a local Mexican government to transform the image of Palmitas – a small underprivileged town just north of Mexico City. 

The mural, entitled ‘El Marco Mural Barrio de Palmitas’ is a vibrant expression that covers an impressive 20,000 square meters or 209 houses. 

Organisers of the mural intended for the project to unite and empower the local community through promoting a sense of identity and ownership.

Watch a Spanish documentary on the town and it’s vibrant aesthetic transformation here or follow more wonderful creative initiatives by German Crew here.
