MLK Day of Service
In order to revitalize and reactivate neighborhoods, The Walls empowers the community, initiates artistic engagement, and encourages volunteers from surrounding areas to participate in community driven clean-ups, murals, and enrichment activities.
Through these cultural redevelopment projects, we hope to encourage business owners, civic leaders, volunteers, and local families to commit to place and actively participate and invest where they live and work.

Through the principles of creative placemaking, The Walls empowers citizens to rejuvenate public and private structures and streetscapes, which improves local business visibility and public safety, and brings diverse people together to inspire and be inspired by their city.
Encompassing our 'Reactivate' initiative is our MLK day Festival of Service. This four-day event facilitates the painting of blighted buildings and murals, planting community gardens and trees, repairing fences, and hauling trash away from properties.
These creative efforts are fostering an environment for investment, job creation, and economic development, reducing and closing wealth inequality in our rural and urban communities.
