El Nuevo Futuro

Transforming Walls in Honduras

These two public art projects, El Nuevo Futuro para Compartirlo Despierto, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras were led by Michelle in 2015 through the Meridian International Center's Community Engagement through the Arts Exchange Program and with support by the U.S. Department of State’s Cultural Programs Division and the Alianza de Jovenes Honduras US Aid.

Michelle trained local artists and connected with local youth in la Colonia 21 de Febrero in Tegucigalpa. Together they transformed walls to reflect the community’s voices and present messages that reflect solutions to their social issues plaqued by drugs and violence.
