Our Mission

The main purpose of the project is to turn the whole street into an art gallery. It seeks to develop an artistic project of urban art that can portray through colors, shapes and images our culture and history so that it can be shaped in a lively way and accessible to all citizens both Sosua and the country.

In order to achieve this objective there must be everything, we cannot circumscribe only to the renovation of housing, must also integrate everything in the environment, whether a lamppost, a garbage truck and even part of the power line.

The subjects to be painted will be established previously by the guild of artists responsible for the executed of the project, but the invited artist or volunteer who is in charge of said housing will have the freedom to sketch what he wants to express and the way you think it more convenient. These should aim to encourage people to become aware of the specific issue.

Our Purpose

To provide the tourism sector and especially the inhabitants of the city with access to a more mas­sive and democratic art than that confined in museums and exhibitions, where urban art is the pretext and at the same time the engine of a process of positive transformation of a community which seeks to transform its image and strengthen its identity.

The important thing is not the dimension of the project, but to improve relations and communica­tion between neighbors. Participation, networking, community feeling and empowerment are key concepts in this kind of project.

Why Sosua Abajo?

The main reason for choosing the community of Sosua Abajo was to be a strategic area to achieve the objectives of this project. At the entrance to the city, Sosua Abajo is the first impression and identity of the community of Sosua, which has great cultural potential that has not been explored in recent years.

Sosua Abajo represents the working class of the municipality of Sosua, the counterpart of what would be the tourist environment, so it is to understand
that there must be a symbiosis that allows visitors to enjoy everything that can visually offer this municipality.

Vision towards the future

This project opens precedents for new manifestations of urban art to emerge and with them a new and more integrated vision about art. This specific project represents the evolution and valorisation of years of history and culture in the city of Sosua.

But now they gain a new focus and innumerable possibilities, including allowing a good part of the population that does not have access to art and culture, to speak with that language, contributing to the transformation of the social, cultural and qualitative relations of the urban.
