Roc Blackblock mural project in Cuba 2020-02-06

Roc Blackblock mural project in Cuba

Street artist Roc Blackblock just returned from Havana in Cuba and along he brings the latest on his recent “muralistic expedition”.

The #colorCojimar project was an initiative that included Greta McLain, a muralist at Goodspacemurals (Minnesota, USA),Pablo Kalaka, a Chilean-Venezuelan muralist, and Mots to Cojímar, (Eastern Havana).

The project was part of an extensive process of dignifying public space through the murals, organized and self-managed by the local collective “Guarida de Sueños” and working with the whole community, other branches of this project have been cleaning the beaches, creating leisure spaces for young people or organizing non-profit cultural events. Due to several last-minute bureaucratic obstacles, they were unable to make the scheduled interventions, fortunately they managed to move them to Old Havana!

Thanks to the #colorcojimar project we were able to carry out the activity and insert it into the Social Economy and Solidarity project Arte Corte, a social transformation project with 20 years of experience working with young people with disabilities and / or at risk of vulnerability and exclusion. The various murals made, improved the environment, became catalysts for new community bonds, and where also the result of community engagement processes, workshops and meetings with local artists.

The most social side of art in public space has shone through this project and it has become a wonderful experience for the artists all being able to take part in and for the whole community as well.
