Groundswell Community Mural Project is a Brooklyn-based, 501(c)(3) founded in 1996. Groundswell brings together professional artists, grassroots organizations and communities in partnership to create high quality murals in under-represented neighborhoods. Our work inspires youth, communities and artists to take active ownership of their future and equips them with the tools necessary for social change. We work city wide with a special focus on Brooklyn.

For ten years, Groundswell has served young people and communities who testify to the power and lasting impact of our mural projects. Using our innovative model, we have worked with over 900 community members— including low-income teens, undocumented immigrants, people living with AIDS and multiracial neighborhood associations—to complete more than 50 collaboratively designed and painted murals in their neighborhoods. Groundswell not only designs programs, we teach people how to organize service projects themselves.
