PAINT JAMAICA and plant jamaica - uplifting kingston's inner cities
PAINT JAMAICA AT 41 FLEET STREET
The Paint Jamaica project started in July 2014 when a group of Jamaican artists and a French traveler got together and decided to bring art into the streets of Kingston in unexpected ways and in unexpected places.The idea at heart was to change and revolutionize the relationship between art, talent and society. However, along with creative expression, Paint Jamaica had a greater social cause which was to change the negative stigma around Kingston's inner cities. With this vision in mind, the team embarked on a ten day project of beautifying the walls of a gigantic abandoned warehouse at 41 Fleet Street in Parade Gardens- an inner city that few Kingstonians had been to, yet even heard of.
For over a month, prior to bringing brush-to-wall, the Paint Jamaica team had been connecting with the residents of Parade Gardens to understand their aspirations. This feedback translated into dazzling murals with positive and uplifting messages designed by talented artists who rolled in from all over Kingston...
Paint Jamaica thus grew and evolved into a movement of democratic art and as a true community project, engaging volunteers of all backgrounds and the residents of Parade Gardens. Hand in hand, they transformed an abandoned space into a new street art landmark: 41 Fleet Street.
PAINT JAMAICA IS BACK... AND NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Seeing the positive impact this first project was able to deliver, they are now moving onto the second initiative which promises to be just as exciting and uplifting as the first.
But need YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS A REALITY.

PLANT JAMAICA AT LIFE YARD
“I can say with confidence that Plant Jamaica will create a model of what can be done in downtown Kingston in a cool, inexpensive, innovative and environmentally-rich way that is interesting to all. It will provide a spark and blueprint for others to be inspired and equally as importantly for others to want to lead in other areas of the country where suited.” Andrew Bruce, Founder of Plant Jamaica.
