Wichita, KSN (KSNW) – A local non-profit organization uses creativity to bring light and value to the northern tip of Wichita through an initiative called “Painting The Future”.
Ariel Rodriguez, executive director of Empower Evergreen, said he hopes the new initiative will bring appeal to areas that are often overlooked.
Saturday community members gathered to paint colorful murals that represent the entire city of Wichita, not just the Nomar area.
“We need to make sure we are dealing with the inhabitants here, so that we can invest directly in the community and everyone can thrive in Wichita and have a future here. It’s a very direct initiative, “Rodriguez added.
Rodriguez says he plans to host several other similar events in the near future to help show the true value of the neighborhood and the assets they have.
“Pintando El Futuro”, also known as drawing the future, is a permanent project.
