PEACE MURALS FOR XMAS AND BEYOND

 

Students from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts have partnered with The Ministry of National Security to paint peace murals in Swallowfield. The murals contain words and images advocating peace and are part of the Ministry’s ‘Liv Gud’ campaign encouraging Jamaicans to take a stand against crime and violence. The Ministry hopes the murals act as a social contract with the community to promote greater community engagement, strengthen public order and safety and encourage a culture of peace for the Christmas season and beyond. Similar murals are slated for 21 other communities. The first murals are on walls on Downer Avenue and Old Henry Lane.
