The Brookline Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Relations (ODICR), in collaboration with the Brookline Arts Center, the Brookline Center, the Brookline Teen Center and Steps to Success, is proud to showcase the results of Community BUILDs, a pilot social action that promotes community service, engagement, and development. The social action involved a set of workshop sessions with the BIPOC youth, the BIPOC artist and a clinician, for the co-creation, co-development and co-installation of a public mural in Brookline. The action will culminated in an celebration on July 26, 2022, with the participants, their families and partners involved. Click the title linked above for more pictures and a video of the event.

A special thanks to Sabrina Dorsainvil, Gracie Yang, Jonathan Yeh, Marie Mendola, Sophia Ma, and Tayra Escotto, the amazing local young adult artists who co-created, co-developed, and co-implemented the mural with Carolina San Miguel.
