The Refuge Project

During the development of the Aspire: No Limits mural project, the Mural Arts team curated a mindfulness program at Audenreid High School in South Philadelphia, entitled REFUGE, targeted toward Black boys & teens. Throughout the day, participants were inspired to reflect upon their journeys and encouraged to focus intently on their dreams & goals.

The REFUGE project incorporated a series of workshops utilizing proven mindfulness methods including yoga, meditation, and visioning exercises to assist participants in learning centering strategies to counter stress,  bypass conflict & think positively.
