A large collaborative narrative mural entitled “Wake-Up” is on display at the Amity Foundation. This painting was created by a group of 10 talented Amity Foundation residents. It depicts the group’s expression of a world where they and future generations can thrive. Their interactive art experience began with a Pachamama Alliance workshop giving them a chance to tune in with the state of our world today, their feelings about it, and their potential as “change makers” in it.
Amity Foundation is reconnecting individuals who have been “thrown away” in foster care, juvenile and adult prisons, and mental institutions with healthy food, source separation, waste reduction, product stewardship, and alternative gardening practices. Creating safe and therapeutic spaces that shine a light on the parallels between the macrocosm (planet) and microcosm (individual) to inspire change through the conservation of natural resources, that slowly shift wasteful behavior to a more sustainable one.
