POW! WOW! Worcester 2016
What It Is
What It Is Doing
The POW! WOW! Worcester international mural festival strives to cultivate a vibrant public space, contributing social and intellectual capital at a low- to no- cost to community members. Festival programming brings people together via artist talks, outdoor celebrations, and fundraisers. The murals produced by the festival serve to strengthen the community while remaining culturally sensitive to the area, and allowing for beautification without inherent gentrification of neighborhoods.
Why we did it
The murals endeavor to activate space and increase walkability to enhance public safety and the perception of the Downtown, inspiring pride in residents. The festival generates local economic growth through tourism, incentivizing people to return to see murals and visit local businesses discovered during the event.
