Last year we dedicated the art piece we made to reforesting a critical habitat in the the Ecuadorian Andes. With the money we raised we were able to plant 600 trees in the Choco-Andino. This year we are are excited to announce that we’re expanding that project to help one the world’s bio-diversity hotspots become protected forest.

This is a week-long program that is designed to highlight art as a catalyst to bettering people and places. Designed to teach students how to use their passions for positive change, we’ll spend the week making a large mural that will be displayed on the side of Dangerbird Records/AKP Recordings in downtown Silverlake. In support of the mural’s message, we’ll use host a fundraiser at the end to celebrate the art piece and raise money for good causes!
To create a piece of art that is beautiful and represents a deeper message. Connecting the younger generation with inspirational teachers and mentors in a positive, equitable manner.
August 14th – 19th 2022
This program is open to students with an earnest desire to create art! We’ll meet on site in Silverlake from 1pm – 5:00 PM daily. Students will receive foundational art instructions and techniques from our resident muralist Eugene (Gene) O’Neill, before diving into mural creation. The art we create will act as a symbol for positive change, acting as a medium that impacts people and place through aesthetics and tangible change with our reforestation efforts in Ecuador. The idea is to allow the art to be able to have an impact near and far.
Eugene O’Neill has been shaping the development of creatives, local organizations and the youth for over a decade. Starting a screen-printing company (Made In Truth Clothing) during college allowed him to maintain balance between artistry, business and education. He is an Upstate NY native, using art as a mechanism for healing throughout the community, painting intentional spaces that inspire others and creating clothing that empowers them.
LeeMichael has been working with student groups for 12 years. He spent years as an Outward Bound and REI Outdoor School Instructor. He’ll be on this trip to teach the curriculum he has been developing with Soulstainable for the last 7 years. -Impact plans, a framework to leave people and place better than you found it.

This mural was created to use art as a catalyst for positive change within a community and environment. The program itself is sponsored by Soulstainable – behind our mission to use our programs to leave people and places better than we found them.
Last year we were looking inward to grow upward. Just as the seed represents – growth happens in two directions. Spreading roots into soil, reaching ever upwards towards the sun. Just as human beings must learn to be at peace within themselves to have outward success. We strive to encourage students to create this multi-directional approach to growth through what they love to do, and in this case – make art.
